kids on bikes run over

A Sense of Place, Hiking Trail Scents

 

coastal hike
the scent of heather
on the hill

 

Editor’s comment: Here we are situated on a coast, where the humidity can help to carry scent – when I read this poem I am sure I can smell it…

Senryu – Prune Juice

 
ecology lesson
children make trees
from paper

 

rigor mortis
still obstinate
after death

 

deregulation
my handwriting leans
further to the left

Senryu – Failed Haiku

 

strawberry moon
the builder’s butt
sunburned

 

conkers
his adam’s apple
up and down

 

he bends over
to pick a pumpkin
harvest moon

 

expanding frontier
he loosens his belt
another notch

 

immortal
the mosquito
I killed yesterday

 

blind date
only the cabbage
on his teeth

Haiku – Scrypic

 

hidden behind her shades blackberry moon

 

I pick up
my lost remains
crab nebula

 

quarter moon
I pick up
my pieces

 

family home
bruised apples
in the cider

 

trembling leaf the sound of her name
