…enjoying summer 26

slow to ripen – round
globes hang heavy waiting for
the sun, after the rain

Here’s Looking at You Kid?

Or otter?
Round snout or
Pointed? – brown or black

Or smaller –
The otter is
Bigger, the minx is

Of the
Same family – wasn’t
A polecat though, I’m

Aquatic artisan was
Indeed a furry little



“Here’s looking at you, kid” was improvised by Humphrey Bogart in the Parisian scenes and worked so well that it was used later on again in the film (Casablanca).

round to it and back

a haibun:
round to it and back

circle of errands
circles of tree –
finally getting chopped
circles of eddies flowing free –
after the rain gutters were cleared
circles of your hand cleaning
the window while up on the porch roof
circles of going round the house
to weed here and there

circle of thoughts
circles of butter beading in the pan;
for breakfast then for dinner
circles of dreams,
hunting through treasures
circles of news printed headlines
swimming on front pages
circles of repetitious wandering –
life as we know it…

a fading circle;
moon nestled in new tree buds
safe; for a moment…


*Terrestrial Trio

a solution
for continued existence
heart and soul together

with satellite
around the sun
one of many, this

life gifter
for so many
blue marble in space

The lane up to the library is dotted with Red Bud trees
They should not be budding in the cold air of January
But then the air has been warmed by the round orange sun
Outlined so clearly by clouds trying to harness star flame
