Green new leaf
fits hand perfectly—the future
lies in your palm.

It is the white hour
between deep night and soft dawn.
Even the wren stares.

Hallow mouth of the moon.
Clouds cross forming
an airy handkerchief.

Luncheon by the lake.
How lucky we are to have
such a large finger bowl.

Splash.
One word in
oceans of sound.

Inquisitive…
the gingersnap cat stares as
I get undressed.

Calculating….
a fish leaps to capture
bite of heaven.

Today’s work is done.
The sun fell from the sky
for a bowl of stars.

Black and white kitten
lying under clothesline in
soft circles of sleep.

A cup of coffee
warm fat pancakes bubbling up
my haiku breakfast.

Try to catch the wind.
Count the ripples in the sea.
Become a child again.

What discus player
threw a tangerine moon on
top of Main Street?

The morning mist roams
back and forth like a
voiceless wanderer.
