Senryu

 
eggshells the therapist’s wobbly heels

 

her wet tee shirt rock limpets

 

white wedding—
the bride shrouded
in a cloud of doubt

 

détente—
a storm blows down
my neighbour’s fence

 

aurora borealis
crème de menthe
on the rocks

 

fresh spring gusts—
a large bra lollops
on the line
