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

IMG_2099Perhaps the most beautiful flowers in the world

Aren’t the brightest or biggest showroom blossoms

But the small and commonplace

That take hold in crevices and cracks

Battered by the tides

And nourished only by perseverance and hope

Survive to wave their own flags

Declaring the sovereignty of inherent beauty

Augmented by the improbable flourish delivered in such a place

Where weeds become wonders

Early Blossoms

You dreamt me awake

I didn’t bother to dream

But I was bothered

Not dreaming

Looking for the first blossom

Worried about frost

A change in the weather


Awash in blossoms

Not bothered at all

No longer dreaming

Watching blossoms


Later, I’ll dream

Of you
