Seasons

Winter I.

White panther stirs fear,
Snowy jaws open to kill:
Winter slinks nearer.

Winter II.

Backlit snowflakes fall,
Floating glitter in sunlight–
Diamonds from Heaven.

November 5/7, 2017

Autumn

Vortex of leaves spins
Season’s final offering:
Hazy autumn days.

Halloween

I.

Deep orange lanterns,
Shrinking candles marking time,
Black claws tear at life.

II.

Lanterns in the night
Unveiling truth in shadows;
Floating souls of light.

III.

Long-deserted lanes,
Dead souls move when life is still.
Living sleep. Dead walk.

Spooky and Night — Haiku

spooky was the night,
masked people and behavior,
spooky was the day.

Antagonist

Wherever I turn,
His form arrests my purpose–
Always the same face.

Two Faces of Grief

Day

They see her smiling,
Performing the tasks of day
As if without care.

Night

Demons in the dark;
Spectres stabbing at her heart–
Not for them to see.

Blue

The colour is blue;
It reminds me of someone
I met and forgot.

Early 1980s

Loss

I.

Diamonds in her eyes,
Lake ripples or stars; the tears
For loved ones now lost.

II.

Cardinals, finches,
Woodpeckers, sparrows, and jays–
Friends to the lonely.

III.

Lake breezes singing–
Spirits of children at play
When life was still whole.
