20.03.12 ii

with time on my hands
haiku for an empty room
nah would never work


freezing rain exposed
how long for system to pass
longer than you have


this land that i love
'my knowing its name shocks you'
missouri couteau

magpie with gopher
and for my car just pulled up
brazen disregard

on the other side
ides of march at hand behind
forward now to what


walk of wanderlust
spring the promise of summer
tramping coast to coast


gaptoothed noisy street
are glory days still ahead
tumbledown houses

say lugubrious
fell ice below the water line
this sloe-eyed siren

today i saw geese
broken river yesterday
buds on trees i swear

repair elbow joint
food drys on stacking dishes
as a sealant sets

fly swatted this morn
light of escape your death
a sure sign of spring

earlier this year
slick brown ice gentle shower
winter turns to mud

as this work deepens
story begins to emerge
a life of its own


wind shift north to south
fine snow streams across the road
fickle but forceful


nomenclature fails
changing colours of the sky
as the sun rises

let me see to that
[fear close in to crush all hope]
but first i'll need to...

let me see to that
[joy seeps in, erase all fear]
but first i'll need to...

consequential act
writer's hook for the reader
for the character....
