hush . . .
a leaf is loosening
its grip

pre-born moon —
the sea swells up
in darkness

death march!
first quarter moon
in autumn

autumn sky
darkness enters
the leaves

river fog . . .
the heart of darkness
overspills

leftover
drone of cicadas . . .
shopping mall

star stream . . .
the road within
darkens

after love
moonlight blurs
our edges

summer idyll —
a wild strawberry bobs
on her belly

Gaudete Sunday —
the ciborium so full
within the darkness
