in the dragonfly's embrace
a dragonfly

    summer dwindles ...
    each passing day
    tightly embraced

    A fallen leave
    in the river's water-
    two saved butterflies

    silent forest path
    towering pines spread
    among green-black moss

    i realize you wrote this piece 4 years ago,
    but nothing seems to have changed. dragonfly,
    summer deepens, & solstice poems in haiku
    sre trite. it's well written, but how many
    times must we go down this road?

    at the beach
    3 men drink beer
    in waist deep water

    swimming hole
    karen asks if i'll
    remone the leeches

    enlighten chilly night-
    in buddha's embrace
