Haiku- Autumn 2013

hound dog
and weather vane
point north

geese flying south,
black beans on the stove...
was four years ago

or harvest moon
in the window

stark memory-
scarlet fire grove
proves genuine

sugar maple
above the frost,
a form of love

smoke rises
beyond where
leaves have fallen

tannic and silent,
father and son,
waterfowl hunt

momentary hawk,
above a hundred years
of russeting oaks

abandoned car
and a country road-
what was before

“Wealth Management”
and leaves spiral 
in the alley beside

scale of evening,
geometry of the sun
in falling degrees

have you found
the floating ladder
heard in a poem?

leafless branches-
yellow's gone onward
as November light
