Ritual

Morning light washes over a hillside home in Zacatecas, Mexico.

 


Behind white curtains
we share tea and oranges—
autumn ritual.

Four Autumn Haiku


1.
autumn mystery—
the way praise spills from my heart
when the first leaf falls
 
2.
My partner dances
not with me, but with ashes—
autumn’s first hard frost.
 
3.
Doors on autumn’s hut
stand ajar—dinner simmers
on an open fire.
 
4.
Baby’s got no shame,
but he won’t tell me his name—
this cold autumn rain.

There will be bread, child,
for the fields are full of corn,
plump and ripe and sweet.

Stories

Thieving October,
how did you miss the stories
in the old clay pot?

on the pitch-black path my feet
keep going astray.

Quest

I try to read messages
written in the leaves.

in walking a well-worn path,
I find contentment.

lost in love and praise.

Fly on the mountain,
even from such a distance,
you disturb my peace!
