spotlight on . . . xxv (’19)

something startling, to stay in one place
gentle gift, found seated on a grassy mound
half hour’s dying day, late spring
or early summer blurs, cloud drift cool
you start to feel that strange healing
present to yourself, hawthorn blossom full . . .

Acer – a haiku

the red emperor’s time
came and went – he mourned himself
a blood red carpet

sadness at the change of seasons

sadness at the change of seasons is this the last of warmth grey clouds smother sky my sunny run is drizzled on uncomplaining we continue again again again A. H / K. H-H (27 September 2018)

late september

  inside, ticking tickles silence at the window my climbing rose’s trellis creaks hear seasons changing, coming, gone   A. H / K. H-H (27 September 2018)

August air freshens

August air freshens
reminding me where i am
new – this same old turn
