haiku: 5 October 2022

trying to shoot a video
of the damned hawks
don’t they know I’m on TikTok?

haiku: 3 October 2022

I told a friend our breakup story
it’s all still fresh on my skin
two hawks watch from the tower

raven on the lamppost
vans lined up beneath
testing the wind’s direction

haiku: 19 August 2022 (#2)

an eagle drops like a rock into the river
rises with a fish in its talons
I crane my neck, steer around the curve

haiku: 1 August 2022

a raven in the canopy
watches as I pass
each to their own thoughts

haiku: Tanglewood Evening

Tanglewood Evening

on the lawn our attention
drawn to one woman coughing
as the pianist plays

***

four low voices slip
across the manicured grass
a warbler enters from the trees

***

air heavy with citronella
the pop of a cork
during the applause

***

a lone student’s violent end
transformed into melody
all breaths are held

haiku: 2 July 2022

I save my place
in a dead poet’s words
with a goose’s lost feather
