Interview


After a hard day
twilight--the roses are black
the violets are white

Closed army base:
the parade ground with straight rows
of weeds

A fresh bouquet
at the gravestone with the name
worn away

Icicles gone.
a fly hidden all winter
dead on the sill.

Window-framed:
autumn rain, a morning glory
my face

After the last set
the piano keys glow--
solo moon

Ant haiku--
----my writing
---------grows smaller

On the smudge
left by the window cleaner
sunset lingers

Prison fence:
the razor wire glints
with first light

April snowflake
on the bud that will open
into a white crocus
