Rain evaporates,
the Autumn leaves decompose,
Snow melts. Life happens.
Hey! Stop nudging me!
I’ll get up in a minute …
Hit the snooze alarm.
When I’m all alone,
in my mind and in my heart,
you reverberate.
double haiku: An Irish Setter,
gallops through Riverside Park,
greeting each toddler.

His owner just laughs,
reassuring the nannys,
the dog is friendly.

double haiku: She steps off the bus,
And his heart begins to pound,
he’s missed her so much.

The drab bus station’s,
soon illuminated by,
the glow of their love.

At the twin’s law firm,
a pair of para-legals?
Double jeopardy.
She entered, wearing
a sweatshirt and dungarees.
Which left him breathless. 
Dispositions change.
Mindsets frequently evolve.
Never close a door.
double haiku: Dear Monday morning,
I am not ready for you,
come back tomorrow.
I know what I said,
But hey, “Come back tomorrow …”
does not mean today.
Waiting for the dawn,
I lie in somber darkness,
replaying the past.
tanka haiku: She eats lunch alone.
she’s got tattoos and weird hair.
And dreams of Elvis.
  She seems unremarkable,
  until you get to know her.
Ev’rything’s simple.
Ev’rything’s also profound.
Don’t over-think things.
Lunch with an old friend;
laughter at shared history,
hope for tomorrow.
Bad dress rehearsals
don’t always bode well. Sometimes
the play’s a stinker.
Double haiku:  Elegant gestures,
are sometimes ways of smoothing
indelicate actions.
(Giving ‘middle fingers’
are not elegant gestures,
 … and seldom polite.)

To friends, be loyal,
to enemies, forgiving …
Siblings? Persevere.


Talking politics
has become, (it’s sad to say),
‘screw you, you’re a jerk.’


A mild sedative,
is for folks that are afraid
of offending pain.
