Willow

Free-flowing willow
Like violin strings to a bow
The wind yields to you

(This poem won a Judge’s Choice Award with the Ontario Poetry Society – Ultra Short Poem Competition 2021)

Bermuda

Sun kissed sand glistens,
turquoise water laps the shore,
pink. Discarded shells.

Mom or Dad in Haiku

Hockey Night in Canada

It’s a one goal game,
watching with a beer and dad.
They lose. Not the point.

Fun and Games

Thursday nights with Mom,
a show, a movie, or both.
A poem? Could be worse.

letting go

relinquish the past
find present moment refuge
your future revealed

Awareness

moments, cherished few

whispering to be noticed

ever-present time

Release – a Haiku

alone animal bird clouds

 

Clouds release pressure

Intent to nourish and cleanse

A downpour of tears
