haiku from the desert




      sunset's flame
      pale moon floats up -
      good hunting!


                              hotpink blooms
                              hedgehog cactus
                              hailing summer



      coyote digs
      in dry desert sand -
      a skull grins


                              lightning tears
                              clouds heavy with rain:
                              water, water!



      cactus wren nests
      fill sahuaro's holes -
      an owl waits



                             crows quarelling
                             over pink scraps:
                             index or thumb?



      javalinas' lairs
      dug in dry creek walls -
      jojoba roots bared



                              tripping over
                              a rotten tree trunk:
                              whose bite stings?



      cottontails nibble
      grass of golf course greens -
      shadows paint stripes

haiku from Quintana Roo



   red handprints
   around descending god -
   gawking tourists



                              moist and salty
                              unforgettable
                              kiss of a dolphin



                                         closed white sand beaches
                                         uprooted rainforests
                                         new roads and resorts

haiku in the dark



      driving along
      a windswept road
      "no vacancy"



                                              last leaves
                                              on bare branches
                                              waiting for snow



      rainsoaked sheets
      by a dumpster:
      yesterday's Times



                                     railroad tracks
                                     curve into distance
                                     coming and going

cat haiku



      moon rising
      stars and cats' eyes
      dim their shine



                                              a sick cat -
                                              aching paws stretch
                                              through my heart



      black tomcat
      watching a nest -
      worried dove flaps wings



                                     cactus wrens squawk
                                     on the verandah:
                                     cat's jaws applaud

haiku for December




      Solstice night
      celebrating
      the dark goddess



                                           christmas lights -
                                           power companies
                                           rake it in



      old man's house -
      oasis of peace
      from xmas glare


                                        christmas trees:
                                        tinsel and wrappings for
                                        tomorrow's trash



      winter months
      in Valley of the Sun --
      feeding hummers
