perfect winter storm
pries up the gray roof shingles
and drips on the bed

We hurry…

Through afternoons of
thunderstorms.
Going home across moist
blackness. This day finished.
Another piece of the puzzle gone.

sunrise

daybreak painting a tin star
autumn leaves and stepping stones
a long goodbye amid raindrops
not a single reason for sadness
drying my tears happy endings

tanka

cloudburst over
no sound on tin roofs
but cuckoo song
children gather at street
a corner of sunshine

Myself and others

Walking in winter is a struggle
for #myself and others. Our
legs creak in concert with old
oak branches, we squint
when snow pack thaws to fog.
Winter taunts us. Spring is
just another season.

again worlds circle
through yards on our fragile street
old dreams tumble through
