On Molly’s Pond (Tanka)

Summer people leave
not wanting to test winter—
This is all mine now.
Circling the pond one last time.
Geese, too, seem to hate orange.

Spoiling the world’s sleep,
crows— fighting over compost,
wake me with the sun

Spring Haiku

Ripples on a pond
break the morning stillness—
Fallen plum blossoms

First Day of Fall

With midday warming

unmindful of summer’s end

cicadas still sing.

Haiku

With chisel on stone

a lifetime’s reduced to dates—

Read in an instant.

What’s this, summer snow?
Cottonwoods have gone to seed—
Surreal, yet so real

Flailing hilltop ghosts

Scare away the darkness. Scream

Scream, let there be light
