Lusty Orion
chasing seven sisters
may need blue pills

morning downpour
hardly noticed by those two
lovers at a beach

rain - sheets of iron
grays out the sky in an instant
morning downpour

urban tanka

sky so gray erases
luxury condos that block
waterfront view

stormy afternoon weather
does what zoning couldn't
he laddles some soup
into a chipped bowl
unsteady his hand

Orange Band: -- your song
tweee-wee -- could not be heard
over bulldozers' roar

co-Kee! co-Kee!
green frog on a leaf sings
evening, Mayaguez

your green eyes light up
a lovely summer's evening
memories of home

St. Joseph the Carpenter

hands strong and skilled
shaped wood into needful things
once held our Lord

death at the Holocaust Museum

mourning doves calling
flags at half staff slowly wave
some bow their heads

Summer Bird wins
soaring above the Belmont field
eagle among wrens

so many puddles
-- splaaaaash - he jumps in with both feet!
mom's new white dress
