Haiku for One Earlier Winter

Stars burned bluer then
Breathless joyful morning songs
God today made man

Nothing But a Space-Time Thing

I am exhilarated by early morning and
the promise of timelessness
to experience life’s wonder.

Till evening song
when hours hang heavily and
I shift to the eternity of sky for bearing.

Folk Art

Gravity or intent

For Someone Like Sara

Sweet potato by Melissa drying
together in one heap.

I make a one-cup dough everyday,
roll it or fill it.

We’ve seawater still on our fingertips,
a crust of hot crystal salt.

I’m different – you said,
through the open window – I’m the one looking up.

You were late. I watched you gather lilac and lace
by the unlatched gate.

Your breathing stills matter about the fire,
all being is cured aromatic.

And so able to last

First Things First

Advance humbly;
we all were once
squiggly beings.

Haiku for Pervasive Things

Maybe just nature
More than anything demands
Love, respect, our fear

…I May, Wish I Might

red stars
around us
dim and unseen

The brightest
are fewer
but we see them
no matter how
far away

Yes they’re the first
to burn then fade
flickers at the rim
of time

Since Creation
there’s not
a smaller M-type star
that’s yet died

She handed me an oar
pointing to the small dugout
there on the bank

Row briskly

God is

Life is naught –
a dream

Carpe Noctem

From what,
for whom,
until when,
do all these
planets spin?

There below
on the dark side,
see them – aren’t those

We no longer
pay attention
nor pray
for those who
destroy the
blue pearl

First From The Sun

On Mercury
its day is
longer than
its year

It’s all
about spin
the path
your journey
