haiku: 5 May 2021

babble of birdsong:
what tower could we construct
to know its meaning?

fishermen sling boats
on the shore of Lake Champlain
cool spring night settles

Monday: Montcalm Park
a squirrel knocks branches down
mower scares the birds

just as the rain starts
I move into the garage
van life in spring time

deck chair flips over
ripped plastic waves like a flag
April roaring out

POEM: grandpa’s hands

grandpa’s hands

I have your feathery hair
“grandpa’s hands,” I thought, looking at mine
but we’re not related, are we?
that was one hell of a secret to take to the grave
we told you we were naming our first son after you
you said, “Don’t saddle him with that name”
I assumed you meant it was outdated
now I wonder
it doesn’t change the time we had together
or how much I miss you
but others had already chopped down
most of my family tree
now the little that was left
is engulfed by fog
