I rest in a shady place
before moving on.

Five Haiku with Bitter Tea


1.
how to bridge the gap
between the cricket’s chirpings—
summer conundrum
 
2.
No wonder she frets:
Her belly is full of husks
instead of sweet corn.
 
3.
the sound of ruin
roaring through the village streets—
rampaging waters
 
4.
Broken violins
play sonatas in my dreams—
winter’s brittle notes.
 
5.
I’m keeping your note:
one hundred words of protest
against summer’s heat.

Lotus

Was it the blackbird
that coaxed the lotus open
to bask in the sun?

No Thanks


Arrogance alone
keeps my tongue from giving thanks
for breath, stars, sticks, stones.
