reading popcorn poems

satisfying salt crunch but

soon you must haiku

Monday, April 28, 2008


Actors peel the new

onion of a character

shedding pretend tears

Saturday, April 26, 2008


when children are old

flowering dogwood planted

today will blossom

Friday, April 25, 2008


curious fingers

swirling the pollen mist from

Japanese Black pines

Thursday, April 24, 2008


grass covered two track

leads deep into twice cut woods

we walk holding hands

Wednesday, April 23, 2008


sitting statue still

too close to your thistle seed

one fearless finch feeds

Tuesday, April 22, 2008


exquisite bare feet

on morning dew cold flagstones

coffee cup embraced

Monday, April 21, 2008


promise turns beneath

plough then harrow preparing

earth for seed returned

Sunday, April 20, 2008


cricket celebrates

sings of daring escape from

tarantula's cage

Saturday, April 19, 2008


twilight softens long

journeys through course busy days

letting out a star

Friday, April 18, 2008


earth quake threw us out

doors shivering to discover

Spring blood on the moon

choir dogs sing nightly

staccato counterpoint to

coyote solos

Wednesday, April 16, 2008


in age delicate

first flowers open slowly

something must be done

Tuesday, April 15, 2008


teacher before a

final blackboard dreaming of

eureka moments

Sunday, April 13, 2008


tucked into wheel wells

perched on dry all terrain tires

sparrows watch the rain


Saturday, April 12, 2008


starlings too big for

the feeder scattering seed

to sparrows below
