I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

February clouds: haiku and things for February 2007


The view from Dawn's diningroom

Meadows green and gold
lead my gaze past the farmhouse
to vast rolling cloud.


Wide as a river
my salty green tidal creek
jumping with fish.


Water aerobics.
All alone I dance for joy.
Pelican beaks clap.


Flung into my mind
this thought of yours starts ripples
that keep widening.


I don't send, this day,
a big red Valentine heart.
Love you all the days....


He sends me a rose
and promises love always.
All day I'm singing.


February clouds.
White orchids tinged with purple
wait for the rain.
