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?
