Palm Sunday Walk


Palm Sunday. While out for my routine walk, I meet a local author on the bridge. “I admire your latest book, the one you signed and dated at the bookstore a few weeks ago. It was a good read,” I say. He smiles faintly, but says nothing—a stony silence. Perhaps his arthritic legs are stiff from the morning chill. Maybe he needs help negotiating the crosswalk at the intersection. No, for without even waving goodbye he resumes his limping gait. Bemused, I look for a coffee shop. Caffeine might clear my head.
 

Overcast spring day—
the tulips seems reluctant
to flaunt their colors.

When I Forgot My Morning Smile


When I forgot my morning smile, the fish reminded me
That every river wants to rush headlong into the sea.
When blackbirds carried messages beyond the barnyard fence,
Five famous people came to see—they paid but seven pence.
If shuffling gets me to my goal, I’ll shuffle day and night,
But barefoot I will have to go—my boots are much too tight!
Remember on the day I die: No wailing is allowed!
Now promise me that buttonholes will decorate my shroud.

Silent

Plenty of seating is available at this outdoor cafe in Puebla, México.
 
 

On a spring-like day
two old men sit back to back
with nothing to say.

Nonsense to Celebrate Daylight Saving Time


Water spilling from a cup—
Will you help me wipe it up?
Grass is crying in the rain—
Watch out now, here comes a train!
Throw the broken plate away,
And then ask your friend to play.
Sing and sway, don’t rock the boat!
Just remember: Stones can’t float!
