5 Haikus


leaves growing green

deeper than lost shadows

birdsong soundtrack



bleached driftwood sleeping

blanketed by swaying grass

a chorus of frogs



the pull of the beach

an ocean mesmerized

toes curl in the sand



blossoms punctuate

this animated landscape

spring revelation



intertidal echoes

resonate against the sand

gulls soar overhead

on the occasion of my ex-wife’s remarriage

I find myself taking care of my ex-dog

we stare at each other


not quite sure what to say

until he pees on the carpet

each word dangles like a loose thread

from a well-worn sweater

I pull

it unravels

until there is just a pile of rawness

waiting for moonrise
a heron creeps the tideline
pulling a promise

someone else’s rainbow

raining now, hunching into the wind

sea air spilling fresh

winds pulling ruined towers around horizons

white against grey, grey against blue, blue against indigo

shored meadows dressed in purple and yellow

on mottled rocks

an otter surfaces nearby

prize clutched defiantly sliding around a corner

clouds part enough to flash some sky

we are standing at the end of someone else’s rainbow

hunching into the wind

watching cumulus reservoirs slow rolling overhead

underfoot a treasury of the overlooked

while someone wishes

hunching into the wind

rain beats a blue song

from clouds rubbing shoulders

your smile, a sunbeam
