I.

Heat waves ripple

in a street

the young dog is lost

II

The reeds are brittle

in the wind

and the swan is pale.

III

So easily threaded

when younger

the eye is barren now.

IV

The whale sings

to emptiness

my ears are hidden.

V

Rap rap rap

ring

the shower curtain slides.

VI

Dripping with dew

the green blade

greets the morning sun.

VII

Old man in a ditch

paper sack

cars keep racing by.

VIII

In the storm so strong

a twig bends

with deep respect.

IX

Brown guitar so dusty

sitting in a corner

I knew G and G7

I never knew you

four strings left

three work

where do you go from here?

X

Black fog rolling black

olfactory

senses tasting black.

XI

A stranger knocks and enters

from Japan

new flowers grow.

XII

The neon sky awakes

a sleeping night

I am alone.

XIII

Her towel and mine

side by side

married for a moment.

XIV

A mountain stream

and the leaves

are friends forever.

XV

The mountain is high

my rope is short

the fall is brief.

XVI

Your intentions

upon entering

oft times leave with you.

XVII

Intrusions

ominous flowers

blooming.

XVIII

The murkiest of water

can offer

the clearest of reflections.
