    a haiku
    drawn on the kool-aid pitcher...
    summer's spring

    Is there not something wonderful about littering the universe with haikus made out of--and with--natural objects?

    Like in sand and snow and drawn in water, molded out of clouds and disturbing the stars..

    Possibly not.

    a smile
    drawn in leaves
    with a stick


    (or in mud Ed?:)

    our summer does end
    so we jump in the colors
    left by shedding trees

    bittersweet-
    beneath a brooding sky
    last fling of summer
