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

    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

    keeping even

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