Senryu

 

pumping iron —
the weight of
machismo

 

dance class report
she can’t recall the
atten dance

 

black-eyed susan
I should have left him
the first time

 

wolf moon
yesterday’s shadows
dog my steps

 

crescent moon —
she hides her dark side
with a smile

red wine punch
family reunion
round one

brass bell, 1 September 2016

 

 
another funeral
I count the crows
on the phone line

 

strawberry moon
a paper cut
from his letter

 

satellite
my father’s orbit
around the family

 

red paper lantern
his fat belly floating
on the water

haunted —

my mother’s ghost

in the mirror

 

bonsai

pruning another word

from a haiku

 

war —

groundhog day

again

 

migrants

unwelcome —

frozen lake
