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

moonlit night ...
the shimmer of goose bumps
on her thighs

from a crumpled sea
this aftertaste

howling winds
gnash at tossing dreams ...
sea debris

shooting season ...
a refuge of ducks
lower their sights

autumn sky ...
cloud masses

after the dew,
sunrise ravishes
her bed

youthful blush ...
Oh! Celia, Celia,
Celia shits!

autumn love ...
moonlight silences
the rumpled bed

dawn maiden ...
the long day's journey
into night
