Haiku For In Echelon

The red hawk appears
whenever I grasp meaning,
together minds soar.

Definitely. Let’s!

So many colors in so many words, if rainbows could spell
then paragraphs be rain.

Under parasols, our collars up,
we hug and steam the air.

Please capture in writing all that you feel,
persist so in puddles we’re born.

Faith

I don’t believe in the oven light
Things should bake in the dark

Engulf Me

In the rosy hue of the candlelight
her blues appear more profound,
figure on ground in stark relief

all tied up with her sex and aroma,
sepia, bursts of pink, auburn patina

So many percussive manic beats per minute
in the gyrations of her hips, in the fold,
before fall and after the dash, madly, encore,

in echelon, the graceful swoons of grateful ones
and the silver songs of starlit diaphanous beings

Now We’re Cooking

The pan we needed was nine by fourteen;
she gazed then asked, That’s circle or oval?

Redemptive

The question they posed
was given one cloth
would you wipe from
clean to dirt?

They said in time all things would heal
still I journey to get out of time

I’m a scant glance askew sidled by its door
awaiting it to open

To slip stealthily through
at no time

You Just Know

She panicked and said that the mix was too dry
I could tell she’d not worked too many doughs

You’d take me for a ride,
how I loved when you took me for a ride.

You saved me once,
I’ve savored your being,

when you loved me
it slips away you said -
how I loved when it didn’t slip away.

Haiku For A Sudden Rush

Twice I watched her leave,
always the strange wisps vanished;
nothing to hold on.
