poplar fluff
settles on the mailbox –
dreaming of a kiss

morning breeze
a pigeon feather sinks
deeper into the puddle

picking up speed
the broken pieces of scenery
rejoin

jutting out
the bookmark thread waves
as I shut the book

on the lake
wood duck ripples
the image of trees

awake
a fox wails
to its echo

in the park
lovers shaped heart
to heart

slicing a pie
in uneven pieces –
her ringless finger

winter stars the darkness between

war zone –
moonlight drapes
both sides

ebb tide –
her letter
sinking in

stormy seas
the buoy pulls up
anchor

shore-strewn
no room to sidestep
the crab holes

heat haze
the mountain ash
sheds its bark
