A Haiku Each Day

Sixty-two hundred and five Syllables a year.

Up in the Air

First warm day of spring
Charcoal smoke and soccer balls
Float over the park.



Old men playing chess
An enameled samovar
Steams in the shadows.


The Tarot reader
Draws a card, and sips her tea –
Who will come today?

Anniversary II

Like an amber trove…
Fragments of the past two years
Preserved in haiku.

Rain Delay

A sudden downpour
An abandoned croquet game
Sprawls across the lawn.


Gentle drops of rain
Stitching silver filigree
On dawn’s tapestry.


Quiet city park
An old man feeds the pigeons
In the cool green light.
