Haibun: ‘If My Friend Comes’


My friend might come to eat dinner with me. We could sit by the window and wait and watch for the first star. We could toss down shots of apple juice, and retrace our long, sublime journey of friendship in story and song. If my friend comes to dinner…
 

In a dusty ditch
a few sunflowers still bloom—
first days of autumn.

Seasonal Matters


1.
Above the sheepfold,
frost tore a hole in the sky—
stars tumbled to earth.
 
2.
There’s no time to think
about your dirty linens—
blizzard’s moving in.
 
3.
Wash the closet floor
now that all has been removed—
final spring cleaning.
 
4.
On clean white paper
I write some sunflower songs—
strangers will sing them.

Looking toward Summer’s End


1.
Ripening pumpkins
and drooping sunflower heads—
summer’s almost past.
 
2.
Scorching afternoon—
in labyrinths and tunnels
tiny creatures hide.
 
3.
Sheltered from the heat,
we tied bundles of sweetgrass
for ceremonies.
 
4.
End-of-summer dream:
The galaxy inside me,
some unseen hands wove.
