Silver mercury
Scrambles to ninety degrees
Summer’s last hot day.


Drill Team

The last cicadas
Shrill their dry trill through treetops
Rattled by the breeze.


Tiger swallowtail
Flapping through the dappled shade
Chasing summer’s end.


Deep reflecting pond
A watercolor painting
Of a summer day.


The year’s hottest day
Nectar glistens in the sun
But the bees seek shade.

Astronomy II

Galaxies of dust
Swim through a shaft of sunlight
The attic window.

After Shiki II

Rainy April day
An umbrella windowshops
Outside the bookstore.
