hangs about the yoga group
playing the long game

Senryu

 

wild child
she drags her doll
by its hair

 
wild columbine—
he hurriedly deletes
his messages

 
the journey
on the migrant’s face
road map

 
blackberries
you really know how to pick ’em
father says

 
zen paper it’s not writer’s block

 
shooting stars vasectomy failure

Haiku

wind in the woods
the conversation
of tawny owls

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
