poems post Halloween


Here are a few poems, as promised a few days ago. The first is one I wrote for halloween this year and the others are some Haikus from August and September.

(added a couple of visuals for the first poem – the kids are blurred out: one on the right is not my kid, so she’s more erased…)


After Halloween


Halloween didn’t intrude

Past the witches with their brooms

Whirling toys around the rooms.


And we arose somewhat sober at dawn.

post halloween





Cycling through city –

The cars, once sold:

A promise of freedom.







August cornflowers

Watching always

The buzzard on the post






Circling vultures

Await not a death,

But the humans to disperse.
