January 2016

New Year's dawn
the familiarity
of this light

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

a cool start
vastness takes on
the comfort of blue

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

first page
the plum tree
picked clean

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
New Year
morning glances off
everything
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
the freshness now
of what will not be
at year's end
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
carbon footprint
I feed my inner 
phytoplankton
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
new diary
my carbon footprint
in ink blots
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
it begins
coolness tramped down
far underfoot
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
new year heat
valley hills soften into
a misty blue
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
who knew?
all the old out 
with the news
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
fumbling for words
i smarten up
with txts
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
tsk tsk!
forget the elephant 
that never

silence
without doubt
new moon
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
a child screams
"I can't feel my brain"
moonless sky
 
 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
from her hair
a chill exodus
of lice
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
light casts
a new perspective
on loss
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
light repatterns
my neural pathways
through a stream
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
in darkness
the slow tolling
of my blood
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

leaf whispers through the family tree

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
one last
flutterance
bird song
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
spring disappears
with the memories I had
of who I was then
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

slow across a calendar days unnumbered

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
birth silence 
a bag of bones cradled
in my arms
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

this rose alacks incentive

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
dark moon-rise
a swell of emptiness
in bated chests 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
polar melt—
a white crossed landscape 
to die for
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
with this haiku
all the blank spaces
fit together
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
down fall
everything 
I ever knew
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
way up north
tyranny becomes
the new clear
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

foghorns declare the all unclear

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

drip-fed haiku vi a iv tubed nature

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
more equal
than each other
summer clouds
 
 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
summer expanse
nothing to define it
but my words
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
death toll
a bellbird avoids
its refrain
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
bowed by heat
I kneel before 
a cicada shell
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
twilight sky
a word narrows down
my mind's expanse
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
in its fullness
the moon drowns
in my son
 
 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
swift bloom
on a summer breeze
the diva shits
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
humid breeze
rumours of snow drift
from afar
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
thirty degrees
bees hexangulate
summer heat
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
humid haze
air coagulates
in the light
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
in this nothing too
godheads lie hidden
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
by nightfall
our ever-present
unforeseen 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
unbidden nature –
is the earth moving
for you too?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

on tenterhooks the bated now

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
Victory Day—
one child asks another
'over what?'
 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
first reading
where words lie before
their utterance
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
acid rain
I drop a tab
of coolness
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
climate change 
not always 
as good as 
a rest
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
