blue red yellow white
earth tree water sky
season to taste

the mountains

the mountains watch us
grandparents in a chair
we play at their feet

July 28, 2008


early raindrops fall
then many over many
birds nestle in

this patch of earth
it is as good as any-
the day touches all

near twisp
the sky bleeds

phases of the moon
a slow wink to the cats
gathered each night

big pine
in silent mist –
a whale

summer haiku

July 22, 2008

summer evening
the humming bird feeds
impatiens flutter

spun in ice
the cream we stole from the barn
cools our night

thunderheads rumble
softly in the distance


July 20, 2008

the mountain curves down
cups the stream in bedrock –
eternal playmates

quicksilver stream
mixes gold and crimson leaves
coloring motion

tonight we huddle
blazing fire gives forth
all we require

a twisp of clouds
approach the silver face
a watching moon

disco moon

July 20, 2008


all eyes on the sky
this moon is a disco moon
campfires dance
