Pittosporum buds -

And others, ready to go ~

I miss them, this year.

Virginia rain -

Like home, it falls on my face ~

But it’s not like home. 

The last melting snow -

Bulbs burst, their color not known ~

A new garden Spring. 

The Strength of Woman -

The reason we are still here ~

and will remain here. 

Gutter fluid flow –
Enjoying the sound it makes ~
Ignoring the stars.

Booking a cheap flight –
Filling same details again ~
Birth year further down.

Little gusts outside –
Dislodged snow, slowing shifting ~
Her shallow breathing.

Surprising breeze sounds –
Dislodged snow slowing shifting ~
Her breaths are shallow.

She shifts on her side –
Rhythmic breaths, at rest for now ~
Before my snoring.

Old technology –
Could yet still work perfectly ~
Just too expensive.






Winter evening –
Miss the structured walk of ants ~
The bumble of bees.

Robots, Heroes, Tanks –
Carnage unprecedented ~
Small Man’s room, at rest.
