Haiku

 

             storm

with a snakeís forked tongue
lightning announces the rain
chalk white on charcoal

 

 

              light

intimacy is
the illumination of
ourselves together

 

 

                   voice

conversation suns
the tight-wrapped rose unfurling
your voice warms my night

 

 

            hibiscus

first hibiscus yawns
waking up from winter sleep
sticking out its tongue

 

 

                introspection

windows facing in
like facets of a diamond
every one is flawed
white-on-white

 

 

         white-on-white

dentistís waiting room
in hallucination white
listening to the drill

 

 

        peacocks

peacocks on my way
to work, morning opens wide
like their tail feathers
