5 poems

finding my balance
in changing times . . .
autumn equinox

encore!
fall pear blossoms
take a bough

second summer . . .
everywhere the fragrance
of fallen leaves

one cloud
chasing another
this bright-and-dark day

daily drama
. . . above it all
that crescent moon

The Devil coming

for candy

eternity:

graveyard sundial

the gentle touch

of fog

Kitchen haiku

taste test —

discovering the typo

in the recipe
