Haiku


Cobalt blue,green,yellow ochre,

magenta,

in a white paint box.

Joy!

Untitled


Like ephemeral snowflakes,

my people – friends and lovers

drift and melt

into the stream of time.

No holding onto the white and pink tulip blossoms,

no holding onto sweet yellow corn,

no holding onto the blazing sugar maple.

Now – in the snow storm

snowflakes fall, melt on my face,

bring surprising heat.
