Haiku and photo: “The bark”

The bark

My dog is at home /

Shielded from human folly /

Except her owner’s.

Haiku and photo: “Some days”

Some days

Some days, parts are gone. /

Some days, your ride is missing. /

Some days just subtract.

Haiku and illustration: “Dark joy”

Dark Joy

My joy is dark /

With wings embracing the night /

Bounded by duty.

Haiku and photo: “Light”

Light

Before the windows /

Shines the ceiling lamp, hanging /

Empty and yet full.

Haiku and photo: “Box carred in”

Box carred in.

Freight train before me. /

White car blocking my behind. /

Road to nowhere now.

Poetry and photo: “Lichen”

Lichen

Pathways, walkways, walls — /

Lichen covered here and there. /

Brick, stone, wood, and dirt — /

Decay is Time’s only care. /

Taking down the now — /

Leaving pieces that we share. /

Pathways, walkways, walls — /

Leading onward, lichen dare.

Haiku and photo: “Tracks”

Tracks

All travel alone /

Each in a box car of flesh /

Whistling goodbye.

Patterns

Weave and wonders abound: /

Circles, lines, colors, dreams. /

Clouds and water cups.
