Recent haiku

snowed in . . .
fire wraps
around a log

spring —
the pause before
she pulls a sapling

steady drizzle
strand by strand
a robin’s nest

morning chill
a child’s shadow
moves thru mine

starry night . . .
a worn phone number
in the handbook

fresh snow
the things we do

if purple
were my color . . .
twilight snow

subway wall. . .
a poem about
butterflies
