walking in the fog haiku

dark and menacing
tree trunks looming through the fog
reality check

"into the wild" haiku

arms and legs thrashing
fighting against the current
traveling downstream

- written after seeing "into the wild" - sean penn's film about the short life of christopher mccandless.

walking in the fog II haiku

walking in a fog
trees amble out of the mist
silent still watching

the hunter haiku

a deer bows to drink
hooves and tongue ripple the lake
reflections waver

parental mistakes - poem


gold in the folds
of the poet’s coat

clumsy, parental hands
threading and needling
hard-edged currency
between the woven layers

a wealth of defining moments
to be counted and recounted

- written after reading the collected poems of william corbett
