January Smoothie

dark tart cherries
winter bliss

winter melancholy
the color of
iced blueberries

pomegranate arils
escape pods

Snowdrops and Sleigh Bells

snowdrops splashing
like citrus squeezed
onto feathered ice


dripping from the tongue
of the moon


sleigh bells
and a hush of snow
almost silent night


sleigh bells jingling
even the snowman
smiles and waves


the sky flinging snow today
just to hear
children laughing again

Falling - A Set of Haiku

old country road
blanket of pine needles
your cheeks ruddy


my cold hand
in yours


smoke rising
flames bursting
scent of leaves


sweeping over
shades of dusk
black crow moon


cattle lowing
a song
for autumn


cinnamon swizzle stick
hints on my lips


crème brûlée,
and the salt in your kiss

Russet and Gold

russet dreams
in flax and gold
spun through my fingers

crisp and cool
and bright
the mornings of disappearing mist

crunch of apples
sliced and sprinkled
cinnamon and sugar

little fingers
licked clean
i kiss their cowlicked heads

Autumn Series Haiku 

Friday, August 17, 2012


through table legs
painted toenails coquet
the edge of denim

lemon, sea salt
and baby arugula
eaten with fingertips

candlelight flutter
a catch in her breath
traced in his own

sicilian jazz
the subtle intensity
composing their story

Chelan Haiku

on the vineyard
the bees smell sweet

blue dragonflies
tango above
the lake in sea green

white birch night
the heady scent of you
in bent ryegrass

Reconciling the Sea - a series haiku

watching driftwood
roll in                   

slow sea breeze
blowing salt
into old wounds

the undercurrent
an ocean
between them

the tide
rinsing away
bitter roots

like seaweed

their kiss
on the beach
even seagulls speechless

tongues make
slow laps
