~~ 1 ~~
 
autumn afternoon—
in the park two young women
kissing each other
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
watching the old dog
try to lift his left hind leg
to spray the fire plug
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
unexpected breeze
throws my paper boat off course—
autumn afternoon
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
leaves in the tea bowl
sinking down to the bottom—
I heed the omen
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
impossible task—
keeping the stone on my back
while running 5k
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
my neighbor’s mongrel—
how perfectly she retrieves
the little red ball

an afternoon nap—
the shape of the old dog’s breath
among autumn leaves

hot summer morning—
gecko scrabbling on the wall
disturbs the dog’s nap

sagging gates—
behind them a dog
worries bones

Whistling

whistling to his dog
as the shadows clear away
old man shuffles home
