Lost Songs of Summer


1.
Down a winding path
we hike to a summer grove—
listen, the breeze sings!
 
2.
Summer afternoon—
a river combs through old stones,
looking for lost songs.
 
3.
Cheek to cheek we sway,
holding each other, dancing
like weeds in the wind.
 
4.
Summer tragedy—
the face of an old drag queen
crumples in the heat.

Four Haiku Celebrating Summer


1.
Crimson hollyhocks,
how many names of wild things
hide in your blossoms?
 
2.
The peony’s death
happened not in a moment,
for the drought was deep.
 
3.
A little girl waves
at some honeysuckle vines
shaking in the wind.
 
4.
This apricot’s flesh,
sweeter than any honey,
titillates my tongue.

Shadows take refuge between two buildings in Clifton, Arizona.
 
 

On a summer’s day
sheltering with the shadows
is more than child’s play.
