Frameless Sky – Issue 9

 

summer haze
the birdbath
in constant ripple

 

our vows…
a breeze ripe
with dogwood

 

water lilies
how my daughter cups
the sun

 


 

i remember being lead
my hand on her shoulder
her hand on his

 

my eyes opened
to the secret forest

 

and i drew my first breath

failed haiku – volume 3, issue 36

 

Delighted to have a senryu, 3 haibun, and one experimental haibun using cherita as the prose in the latest issue of Failed Haiku

 

still better
in my memory
first kiss

 


 

As Is

It’s been months since I’ve been alone. Truly alone. Lying on the hotel bed I want nothing more than to soak in my music and let thoughts that have been caged up for years come and lie with me.

half-light
remembering my ex
wife

 


 

Depaysement

After several months of communicating only in French, the mother turned to me and in perfect English says, “could you watch the children so we can go Christmas shopping?”  I couldn’t have loved her more.

wheels down
all the streets
unfamiliar

 


 

Three Years Later

i watch you, watching me

burning
past journals
reincarnation

 


 

way of the river

 

in a drawl like the sun

 

she tells us where
to get the best crawfish

 

we don’t have
the heart to tell her
we’re vegetarians

 

unshaved legs
the furtive glance
of my grandmother
