Tide Cloth

The sea swallowed the sky
and drowned the stars in salt
but kept the blue to cover the sand
in a blanket cape
a tablecloth over your eyes

pulled away              
by                     the tide receding

Whispers (Haiku Series)

Willow Whispers

on your face I’d be
dancing fingers of willow
caress of a breeze

~~~

Storm Whispers

whispering in morse
story told by stormy nights
ivy against glass

~~~

Seashell Whispers

tales for hermit crabs
seashells and minuscule stones
whispering of sun

~~~

Root Whispers

she touched tree stumps
turned them over in her mind
what will old roots tell?
