12/26/10 – winter haiku

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
cold seeps into the house
like an invasion of
silent slippery hornets

12/16/10 – winter haiku

winter cold
steals upon this hour
like a thief in the daylight

11/21/10 – autumn poem

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
angels hold
the cold away
wings brush
clouds apart
for today

9/1/10 – poem, the stars are numb

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Maybe the stars
are really just numb
They can be, can’t they?
Maybe my artless hand
stretches up up
hits their empty
watery pulsing
slaps the stars spinning
their cold all cold
tonight
rims my fingers
frosts my breath
brittles the skin of everything
