Lighting a fire to keep warm
Sipping hot chocolate.

Season of Peace

Mean spiritedness
Shall not prevail this season
Peace to all mankind

Details | Senryu | |


Poetry is like a river
Always changing currents
Soft, wild, always demanding attention. 

October sun fading  
Blowing thru golden hair
Wind swept streaks on face.

Never a green leaf whispers
As the sweet smelling flowers drift
Deep into the heart of summer.

I saw spring today
Was an awesome sight
Heaven was open to me.

Eight Months of Heat

Two months past solstice
Subtropical climate sears
Just open the door

Step into oven
Midday sun chars skin and lawns
Sweat flows so freely

Water use rises
AC gives welcome relief
Scalding sand on beach

Take frequent showers
Florida lifestyle envied
Northerners don’t know

Blazing heat last months
Visits to the Sunshine State
Best planned in winter

Seasonal Woes


buds opening now
dewdrops sparkle on the grass
lawnmower wont start

picnic by the pond
ducks provide entertainment
darn mosquito bite

pumpkin patch visits
mild evenings on the porch
back to school jitters


snuggle in warm coats
prepare for Santa's visit
empty pocket book

Just for fun....

Blue Winter

overcast day
winter winds sigh and moan
grieving over you

Details | Senryu | |


rain taps on grasses

dancing between pinkish toes

…cool ripples lull nights


more hard showers pound

flooding dampened moods non-stop

… gloomy dusk-eye frowns

What Makes You Smile, What Makes You Frown

Seasons Of The Dance

Atoms dance, stars dance;
entropy increases while
creation dances.

Words and thoughts can dance.
These words danced across the page.
Seasons of the dance.

The seasons dance by;
Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter
and once again, Spring

We too are dancing;
some with joy and some with tears,
for life is a dance.

Those who dance with tears
feel the seasons of their life
are always Winter.

Those who dance with joy
celebrate all life's seasons
and all life's dances.

Four Angels In A Field Of Green

"Four Angels In A field Of Green"
deep carmine pink lips
her flowing sun dress, fuschia 
a spring flower blooms...
lite pastel blue print
with a splash of daffodil 
innocence dances...
amber champagne flesh
her raspberry sun dress flows
bitter sweet her love...
dark scarlet draped grace
a midriff of native brown
I mingle in thought...

The Snow Cometh

senryu series

first snowflakes 
peppering down
salt trucks ready


dirt hides under
a blanket of snow
for a short while


my driveway
piled high on both sides
city plow cometh


new coat of snow
on the hillside
kids bundle up too


growing snowman
guards the garage
cars on the street

Seasons Change

The barren earth waits
spring prances through the snowfields ~
a warm, welcomed friend 

Hills and valleys sing
summer dances through meadows ~   
a sweet visitor 

The lush forests climb
autumn tiptoes through the green ~
a surprising guest 

birds soar on the breeze
winter runs through fallen leaves ~
death uninvited

Vanity in Summer

Drip me wet, dry me
In heat blazing from your core
Summer stalks the trees

Wringing them dead dry
My veins collapse, and my leaves
Pants in sizzling air

You too drizzle sweat
Skin clammy with desire pants
Packing store, let's cool

Fore we move again
Through hydrant spray and crowd's glee
Spilling pipes reserve

My root journeys deep
Beyond surface love, I mine pools
From willing daydreams

My tongue sips the dew
Scorching the loins, shaking limbs
And breasting day's rest

Let us now retire
The city's silence by sun's fire
Come drizzle me rain.

Details | Senryu | |


Violet candies,
a scent turned into a taste,
remind me of spring.

Afternoon Tan

She bathes in sunlight
Awaiting his lotioned hands
Only to burn more

He comes to her side
Balm splattered on her soft skin
Providing massage

She, in turn, quivers
As the chilly wet moisture 
Gives way to goose bumps

Hands give skin delights
As smiles fall upon the two
And heat between burns

                     tomorrow comes suddenly

becomes yesterday !
