the remains of a wasp
on the windowsill

Tanka

 

night chill . . .
a blanket of lights
blurs the horizon
I sail the milky way
to a distant dream

november fog
the smell of smoke
in the cat’s fur

Tanka

 

ghost orchid
wandering phantom
in moonlight
your eerie glow draws me
deeper into the woods

Haiku

 

bruised apples—
a tethered horse
bites the bit

 

clarinet refrain
a hat collects
raindrops

 

summer storm
the silent rising
of the river
