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
platitudes


 

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
heartbeats


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


 

pretending
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


 

unfolding
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 ...
celebrating
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
