a haiku sequence

while doves cry i coo

 

a season word
cuts 'twixt my coming
and my going

 

human nature stages a high coup

 

spell casting
a hokkus pokkus
of words

 

the verbal hiccups of a beat movement

 

close reading a cross-eyed ku

park bench—
yesterday's warmth
old news

overhead
galaxies swamped
in equations

 

step by step
our paths merge together
as water and wine . . .
in these unplanned moments
we sip eternity
