a haiku and our night out

from ridge to ridge

camera projection left –

of freemans’ waters

neon billboards

one night in finders corner

with fiddle strings

the look of true love

st patrick’s day in sarawak

our plate’s green orchid

a haiku is a fitted appliance

knock on the porch door

sterling rose out of daisies

unsigned gift card

white and blue pills

syringe, thermometer, bedpan

empty bauhaus chair

a haiku is a hundred different ways

in good time

the stars shine brighter

sometimes longer bursts

at the festival

urban samurai in hemp

buttonquail – blue-backed
