A Good Lesson

still clanging stars roar
erase the summer burnt sky
wordless wind embrace

night speak shift appears
tame torment cool breeze besiege
fall comes quietly

sitting still shower
transparent suggestion sense
contact connection

comes the coolness close
carrying a cold climate
white weather snowflakes

Haiku, OneSingleImpression

small swim

one single impression this week’s prompt overt

morning light revealed
bright yellow swaying strong
lilies weaving way

tall leaning presence
full blooms sketch a sunrise view
startling sight

walking further
beneath a fertile flower
exists another new

coffee in hand
morning summer ritual
greet a glorious garden


blue sky

there was never any question
as to who was going first
he was pretty intent on
the erase of any trace

we labored together
creating a world in the
middle of chaotic
where one could
hyphenate, drop off
or add a meadow or two

operating on half
a tank, we separate
a full tank easily
ignoring the dangerous
dark part of pleasure

alighting from the
long ride, it was easy to
praise, hunger and resent
placating the tall weedy fields
long abandoned summer salutation
milk-y way stars

our comfort’s dull edge stigma
pardon the extrinsic cough


abstract shine

sedulous afternoon
earmarked for movement

beneath the stayed surface
blue skies simmer cloudless

bright yellow sun blisters
exposed soft tender skin

apiculate shifting hours
release mystery masquerade

pheromones riding shotgun
lazy river ride

current slows to never
just beside the sandy beach
