Six Haiku


Your Old Adobe

Squat, white mud house.

Someone's labor bore it;

Child of earth and sweat.


New Day

The sun rose today,

And my eyes were brighter than

Its glint on that stream.


On Being A Student

Working hard to know

What others already know,

Then adding to that.


Sonoran Desert

Winter storm torrents -

Rain-soaked earth brings a lily

To the summer's kiln.


Dust Devils

On shimmering flat

Hot and cool air - vortex formed.

Desert gods on tour.


Linnets on My Feeder

Crew-cut kid begging

And red-faced dad avoiding -

Fledgling feed yourself!
