it has roots
but who would know?
lotus bloom

haiku stream ...
the endless flow
of blossoms

ancient frog ...
a haiku splashes
among ahas

darkness shrouds
over bare branches ...
autumn crow

late homework -
he cuts and pastes
web searches

snap election -
a politician harvests

dark dark night ...
he enters the alchemy
of dreams

on her ear
her lover lost
in sunrise

night of stars ...
a child tiptoes
in the shallows


full moon ...
she flashes me
her smile

a power plant
seeding manipura rain ...
radiant spring

hint of autumn ...
hedgehogs roll out
of wonderland

the making of
a beggar's banquet ...
open hands

the autumn sun
somewhere behind the smoke
of her cremation

common ground -
the dreams of the forgotten
take a break

the scatter
of autumn leaves ...
giggling child

cold morning ...
a late rose blooms
a shadow

deepening night -
the silence between

autumn dusk ...
long forgotten bottles
bob in the tide

morning mist -
the nameless that haunts
my mirror

rising sun ...
my eyes straining
tea leaves

first date ...
she wants to swim
in my eyes

the long night ...
a monk breaks open
his silence

sepia moon ...
cuttlefish ripple
through dreams

enso sun -
the negative space of
a full eclipse

river fog ...
my hands trace out
what has gone

purple rain ...
casting words adrift
into God

to forget, I gasp at
a rainbow

hidden depths ...
a dragonfly skims
what I cannot

a moth sails
the widening gyre ...
candle flame
