Two senryu

mango chutney . . .

so much
so little:
time

Two senryu

school days . . .
no romance
in straight-As
 
turn of the tide . . .
pulled by the current
of my thoughts

Two senryu

napkin peacock —

I wipe my hands

on my pants

 

standing by the window

she checks an app

for the weather

Bam!

The mourning dove slammed into the glass patio door hard enough to leave a ghostly imprint of its body and wings. Those birds may act the buffoon strutting around the bird feeder, but they’re tough as an old army boot! This one shook the impact right off and flew away while I stared in amazement.

who has the
nine lives now?
cats in the window
