thoughts of him still—
a flush of red
on the cactus bud

The unexpected
has a sweetness, nonpareiled,
love found late in life
twenty dollars in a winter coat
you, making french toast

foggy night
sometimes it’s better
that way

sunday morning–
the ceiling rose flowers
opening to soft shafts of light

in the darkness
the wind blows a star
across the sky

holding the universe
in place
an acorn hidden
by a squirrel

one long beautiful
string of notes–
the blackbird loves me

beneath a strange tenderness
a rabbit stilled …
lynx in blue snow

along the river
ghosts of forget me nots

@TeresaEvangelin

 

visiting robin
how easy it is
to gladden my heart…
in the baker’s doorway
a fat dog’s tapping tail

@RobinsPerch

 

between the rowan & the smoketree
we hid our wishes
we drank coffee on the moon
& we danced

frog song
a heron’s shadow takes
the last note

what he left behind
she knitted into a sweater
warm with wrongdoing
and then she unraveled it
one strand a night

silently in a snapshot

you are saying something
and look wonderful saying it

the fall leaves are gray
and your smile
is forever

she had a scar like
a pink centipede where her
breasts once held the moon

@beezknez

 

night flaps
against the window
a car faroff
then a dog
then quiet

@whichofawind

 

each daisy
flowering in the meadow
worth five haiku
what price then
your soul

@amoz1939

 

stand among the fallen leaves
wait for the winds
to kick up
and make you a tree again

a bark across the hill
oh your midnight hunger
fox of my heart

wild violets
something so beyond
blue

No one in the park
to admire
the way
the wind sweeps
the leaves away and away

@MarkScabash6

 

in the park
the quietness of falling leaves
when was i young

as if it was afraid we forgot it
autumn wind

the children gone
horse chestnuts rotting
in the backyard

instead
of the world
a dragonfly

october
she’s all silver light
cashmere soft
and rain
that tastes
like honey

sister’s crayons,
if only
the yellow were big enough
to turn the whole world
into sunshine

asked the little boy
yes, his mother said
tomorrow too?

her scales glistening,
the summer-river

swallows s k y

bright sunshine —
the junkie
mocks the drunk

Someday
I want to scrape
all the poems off the rose
and give to you
the naked flower

in the mimosa
it’s always the songbirds
who gossip
about the grackles
and their blue-black feathers
