well dressed mannequins ...
I turn up the collar
of my old coat

    two toys down his list
    santa's eyes scan
    the young boy's mother

    day without tinywords
    haiku appear
    in my dreams


    featherless fledgling --
    umbrella tree
    shades on a sunny day


    bare model
    chilly autumn day
    cloth seating, optional


    intense blue sky
    geese, v-formation
    changes underway

    overseas award
    keeping even
    the envelope

    well into winter -
    toddler runs
    from grandfather's outstretched hand
