Damn that stupid bird!
He knows that I have to sit,
And still shits on me.

All Things Love the Sun

 Fighting through the fence
Two dogs leap at each other,
But they cannot touch.


In the morning sun
Daffodils are radiant.
(All things love the sun)


 Surrounded by moss
Arrogant little seedlings
Proclaim their domain.


 Mystery building
Proclaims itself house of God.
(It just may be one).

Shining In Their Glory

Distant train whistle;
Lone bird sitting on a wire--
Morning on Elm Street.


Marching off to bus
Lucy husbands her backpack:
Trudging reluctance.


Face in the window
Doesn't even smile at me.
What is it thinking?


A beloved tree
Silhouetted in the sky
Preserved by its friends.

 Bush buds are swelling;
Some have burst into their leaves,
Shining their glory.


Two quiet neighbors:
Daffodil and fire plug--
Study in yellow.  

Spiked and smoky green
Chives sprout up near the sidewalk--
A pavement salad.

Alden Daffodils

New Haven Haiku
These are haiku written on walks along Alden and Elm Streets and in the Edgewood Park in New Haven, Connecticut

 Alden daffodils--
Spring bursts out in vibrant hues;
Woodpeckers and cars. 


Sun rays play lightly
On Victorian houses
That line the still street.

Through the concrete crack
Small yellow heads are peeping:
Dandelions grow!


 Lion silhouette
Dark against the mottled sky
Protects from shadows.
