one poem every day

the haiku man

afternoon thunder/

sunshine gives way to lightning/

all the dogs revolt 

in every moment/

when you come and when you go/

be present, alive

careening through space/

arcing through the universe/

I sip my coffee

awaiting glory/

the world grows dim around her/

rest now, sweet grandma

buds on the birch tree/

beyond: sun breaking through clouds/

beyond: the east, day

nostalgic dinner/

BJ’s pepperoni pie/

pizookie chaser

cast iron skillet/

red ceramic coffee mug/

morning elements

six thirty p.m./

dark beer in a cool goblet/

a gray Eastern sky

record-setting rain/

demoralized denizens/

will work for sunshine

morning, the Northwest/

at least two cups of coffee/

a view of the clouds
