palm reader’s eyelashes my fortune in a hat pin

wall portraits—


I begin my yoga count


from the top

turtle pond


a girl shares unshelled


peanuts

first stanza . . .


the missing subject


is a snail

 

February 19, 2013

adrift


in a fishbowl . . .


stray moon

 

February 18, 2013

what if


beneath footfalls


an egg laid

 

February 17, 2013

always


a raindrop hangs on her gaze—


Black-eyed Susan

the sun’s footfalls (random lines not quite haiku)

…this is really me, writing, unshackled by poetic (all forms, genres) discipline. Call me untamed, even feral. I’ll agree. But this is my true spirit that I must let roam once in a while like today. 

*

burnt orange the sun’s footfalls

moon flitting
from staccato dawn
an owl hoots

a scrabbling in the pine copse raccoon eyes

is the fox a man in his dream?
snow melt

zebra
snorts
at jet stream
moonset

ivy wall
in its shadowed side
sunlit sighs
