Tehachapi wildflowers in spring

spring haiku and tanka

early spring rainfall
soaks into dry claylike soil
regeneration

scattering seedlings
diverting mountain waters
biological
interference criticized
let spring bloom naturally

Three Urn Senryu


The Family Urn

Three Urn Senryu

funeral poems
nostalgic and descriptive
buried with the urn

a life that was lived
a person that’s in our thoughts
ashes in an urn

friends and family
stand at a marble headstone
lay a pewter urn

One Haiku and Two Senryu About Obsession


Bubbling Spring

One Haiku and Two Senryu About Obsession

bubbling spring
bring life force to village
fierce in task

inhaling your words
i obsess on their meaning
as if they were mine

love anchors my brain
to some obsessive resolve
grips it like a vice
