snowmobile tracks
disappear behind the trees-
full moon tonight

    early alarm -
    too soon to rise
    wintry sun
    cold morning breeze ~
    through the leaves
    distant moon
    on final approach ..
    four white hearses
    race down the hill
    tear's track
    loved one remembered -
    heard this night

    desert moon--
    nothing to hide

    a visual haiku but quite ordinary.

    autumn festival
    two moons
    at sea

    snow covered metal roof
    natural avalanche
    onto parked SUV

    summer downpour
    tracks cross the lawn --
    thunder rumble in the distant


    sudden, summer shower --
    her outline, through the sheer lawn
