looking out
lookingout
looking out
at the endless open world
through my eyes,
knowing there's one place
that won't be seen

adding stars
adding stars
one by one at night,
wondering
what my great-grandchildren
will think of me

interview
I meant to mention this, but Nasra Al Adawi interviewed me for "LIP".
She did a great job and it should be seen. Plus, you get to see me play a tuba! :)

the sting of sand
the sting of sand
blown vindictively
in a wind storm-
your unfinished promises
are remembered, one by one

first daffodil blooms
first daffodil blooms-
its scent fills my bedroom
as I choose clothes
for a warm sunny day
and a child's funeral

unexpected target

reintroducing
reintroducing
itself to me today,
the warmth,
as I smile, welcoming him
as my prodigal son

unable to endure
the ice storm-
its shade will be missed

from the sun, as I walk
through jasmine-
rudely interrupted

I find myself
I find myself
in one of your letters
from years ago-
finally,
I can stop looking

where all my body rests-

I pass at midnight
I pass at midnight
a car and trailer, loaded
with possessions-
wanting it or not
my past follows me

good news
Tonight, I signed a contract with a publishing company to have my first book published. It begins with a story of my life and what has happened to me, and is followed with a seasonal setting of a lot of my haiku and tanka. It will be in book and audio book. It will be processed into a distributor system, making it available for ordering at more than 25,000 bookstores worldwide. It will also be on the Internet at Amazon, Barns and Noble, Wal Mart and others. The audio book will also be at Audible.com and iTunes.
There's a lot of work now, but I think it's going to be a lot of fun. :)

sun rises-
sound of newborn birds
from spring trees

the sun leaves
the sun leaves
slowly and steadily,
but it will return-
staring at the sky,
wishing today wouldn't end

of an old house shines
through faded, cracked paint-
your words, wrapped in a smile,
fail to hide your pain

are they really
are they really
different from each other,
snowflakes,
landing on a newspaper,
life and death on the same page
