on foggy days

each rock makes promises

broken by waves

in silence

a leaf falls

through the light

red roses scattered

the shore a silent witness

gulls keen overhead

a low flying vulture

considers his options

my eyes, shaded

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

waiting for moonrise
a heron creeps the tideline
pulling a promise

rain beats a blue song

from clouds rubbing shoulders

your smile, a sunbeam

Hat Parade

playfully the wind

pulls the bowler from my head

pirouetting I snatch it back

 

edges softened

by ten gallons of rain

broad enough for a dry neck

 

this hotel lobby

has many ways to spend money

I gamble on a hat

 

autumn is perfect

for sacrificial wicker

Brooks Brothers throwback

 

in Montreal for work

I find a shrine for hats

Borsalino paradise

 

on a forest walk

spiders fall from overhead

evading swallows

 

I don’t wear ballcaps

give me a fedora instead

it rains, I smile

 

at the front door

I ponder which hat to wear

children laugh outside

 

unleashed, her hair

flies triumphantly up

a golden crown

 

woven cedar strips

bridging cultures and form

one more seagull target

 

silhouetted

crisp brim unmistakable

it’s the police

 

I find a feather

its beauty calls me skyward

to mourn lost flocks

snowmen bleed out

flooding paths with memories

smiles return to earth

raindrops ripcord

into snowflakes stuttering

frozen hearts thaw
