Fallen leaves

some in the water

some in the boat:

fallen leaves

One blossom left

one blossom left

on the orchid stem —

one last blossom

yet to fall

as summer wanes

Blue-sky rainfall

blue-sky rainfall —

a sheet of wet

and then diamonds

Kitchen haiku

sunlight on the counter —

one yellow banana

in a green ceramic bowl

Two on autumn

foggy morning . . .

blazing with bittersweet

the cemetery wall

 

leaden clouds . . .

the way the bare trees

support them

The Phoenix

Buttons the cat “goes away to die” most days now. Living in genteel confinement in my home office and wanting for nothing, this 18-year-old trickster tries to convince me that the end is near by leaving her heated bed and squeezing herself into odd spaces of the indoor landscape — behind the desk, between the filing cabinet and the wall, into a nook in the closet. Her daily swan song has done nothing to diminish her zest for life, though, and she “returns from the dead” refreshed and alert. Somehow I think she will outlast us all.

from the window
a bright red bird . . .
the cat’s twitching tail
