Playground

Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings
TIME TO SCREAM!

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

one leaf dangled

one leaf dangled from
a single spider-web strand
in fresh morning air

as I greeted the sun,
sitting under a tree in
my dew-filled backyard

I was stilled by the
beauty of this lone leaf, in
its simplicity

But, then the leaf fell
I was startled, but the joy
in my heart  remained

**morning, noon, night senryu contest

Shoppers walk to tunes;

Memorable Moment


                                           Memorable Moment

                                               a  picture taken
                                          the moment is saved in time
                                                will last forever

Rough Night

my chafed wrists are sore
odors rise up from the floor...
Cell mate starts to snore
