“Pause the Parsing”

“Pause the Parsing”

President’s dismay

at White House briefing parsing

gives me ample pause.

A Thinking of You Haiku…

Mulling it over,

Mother wishes you many

More-to-come  birthdays…

(for Carol, August 28, 2016)

Wintry Haiku

ice dripWintry Haiku

One, last, drop of ice
slips the fingertips of roof
falls to nothingness.

Frozen Tanka

One, last, hushed, droplet…

Surrenders its final breath,

Ice crystals melted…

Mutterings of winged things

Push pale winter into spring.
