Endurance Haiku


droplet vibrates, strong
wind rippling shadows, one
leaf, unbroken stem.

In the City

In the City

In the city, he tries to come clean
get lost in all the noise,
the cacophony like a Greek chorus
gone mad.

The shoosh of the subway
slides into the station,
her whispers remain against his ear
her voice like the whip of a flag
waving over a foreign territory.
Her body lying still, covers her thoughts
like a soft sand.

He finds his way up the stairs,
the buildings stare down at him
like sentinels guarding some secret
of a lost age.

How huge and small he feels
as he finds his way among the dead
faces, he's never felt more awake
or more

A clogged artery

the dog that barks at night
the sidewalk has failed.

Shades of Green

Shades of Green
I once thought I knew what green was,
mixture of blue and yellow,
the color of grass.
organic sweetness.

comes on sometimes
like a slow
inch by inch,
your eyes widen,
until suddenly,
you see.

Other times,
it is like a tsunami,
lifting you on its crest
to touch the stars.

I now know green,
the jade ocean under an ochre sun,
sage eyes reflected back to me,
your viridian heart with its touch of blue
rising and rising

as dark as blood.
