bit of that

i look east to see…
orange moon

day of haze
i look for some hope…
here or there

sitar strum
darkness unseen now…
simply real

bits pieces
reality of it all…
out alone

ears cold
to the sense of…
tundra hike

evening
pooch and me all over…
in the rain

that was then
circling overhead…
dark clouds

chasing rain
we find ourselves now…
just anew

tracing curve
clouds wipe away clean…
rainbow ends

om moments
joining me in between…
soft purrs

drops of rain
here, there in between…
nothingness

orange trim
soaking it all in…
clouds and more

hollow space
on dog bed even cats…
now elsewhere

shimmering lights
across lake pristine…
yet things dark

dim light
reflected in it…
gentle snores

tracing steps
along beaten path…
to no avail

soft pats
the back of her head…
rain drops

lacing dry
these empty nests…
sky lark poop

lone cricket
its nightly singing…
to no avail

season end
even grasshoppers…
see own end

evening sun
uncertainties…
soon prevail

afternoon rain
even cats sit around…
unmindful

night settles
wishing on no one…
sorrowful day

evening chill
cricket songs now gone…
bit muted

tibetan bells
ringing around me…
kitty cat snooze

afternoon sun
circling with dog…
poop in hand

with every moment…
nothing remains

westward shimmers…
all anew

hot day
nice excuse for sore loser…
at scrabble

floating down
clear creek gentle…
speckles of gold

tofu bits
biting into them…
cricket songs

evening breeze
crinkle of plastic…
so easy

more waves

creamee cup
slurping it all in…
vermont vibe

rain storm
across the gray lake…
bit more gray

counting breathe
on early morn ride…
chill on chill

warmth of bodies…
fills the air

counter clockwise…
we rejoice

rain drops
sprinkle my bare feet…
night earthing

gentle leap over
grasshoppers prance simply to…
say hello goodbye

alone in bedroom
many a days later a…
whilted sunflower

unfurling itself
across august afternoon…
something in the air

her gentle brush
exploding across room…
citronella scent

soft echo
crickets chirp to…
moonlight

slow move
this afternoon…
summer air

sneaking up
summer afternoon…
our dog has aged

eyelashes
holding together…
this evening sun

after rain
bunnies’ hair…
full of sheen

shades of purple
across sky…
so be it

quiet afternoon
blare of radio…
nothing else

staring back
evening mirror hides…
shadow of self

purple orchids
still blooming…
we still argue

sunday afternoon
repotting orchid plants…
best thing to do

snow drift
even the dog…
prefers the easy

another kvetch
to very end…
never seen

falcon stare
at traffic stop…
bored with humans

peace
finding simple in…
staring the sun

pale snow
standing out…
a lost feather

chasing wings
my mind follows…
in full ease

feeling at home
yet not at home…
crazy kitties

snow evrywhere
in spite of it…
fumes smolder

new year
spirits ride…
new wave

snow flakes
bringing it on…
all things new

head in a bun
like everything else…
good ol’ days.

chill wills
fingers soak in…
evening cold

bit by bit
my anger leaves me…
out of place

fingers numb
to evening cold…
caressing my head bump

distant roads
we remain here…
in agony

saturday sun
even snow melts…
dirt remains

days later
bitterness…
still remain

noise and candor
finding both…
separate ways

step by step
find myself…
new tribe

lost and found
on hotel floor…
fake eyelashes

leaves swirl
my mind churns…
un-happiness

november walk
in shadows of peaks…
climate has changed

bit by bit
a sense of loss…
my old self

breaking point
besides myself…
no joy remains

gray sky
rows of geese…
tremble southward

crickets
their night song…
so clear

no really!
another argue…
fire and fire

shifting light
even sunflowers…
rest easy

days later
moon across city…
half sleep

friday evening
comparing notes…
wrong then more wrong

back to grind
at least sun shine…
a plenty

same moon
in the morning…
still full

leading the way…
harvest moon

mountain air
soaking it in…
and the sun

wholeness
drawing us in…
rising moon

silent follows
unmindful of…
cat snore

waking me to…
thoughts of coffee

rabbit gone
all that remains…
memories of proximity

gentle breeze
waking me up…
seasons change

day later
trace of mountain…
in morning sun

season fades…
love does fade

evening hike
my memory fades…
these old trails

gentle soar
my eyes cross…
a bird and a plane

time spend
connecting to all…
old and new

afternoon drive
rush hour traffic…
even this will pass

yellow blooms
unmindful of…
prickly neighbors

orange hue
with every step…
across western sky

sarod rhythms
keeping pace…
cricket song

hard bop
cat wags…
perhaps in glee

lost souls
chasing shadows…
along the ridge

earthing
no end to it…
deer poop?

morning walk
even pooch takes easy…
in crisp air

gentle cat
a little more gentler…
he sleeps

shades of orange
shades of blue…
no shades remain

odd day
end of it all…
orange glow

sunflowers fade
my love is back…
autumn in the air

legs exposed
cat under covers…
“I need my sleep!”

laying waste
among blooming sunflowers…
dead grasshoppers

evening walk
my every step…
grasshoppers plop!

snow flakes
in between…
a cat meows

evening ragas
the dog too…
likes it simple

among all things…
a dog snore

to pee

windswept
my mind…
another place

darkness

meditation
following it up…
more silence

after snow
creating our own…
irregular patterns

our stroll as…
foot prints

to other side

moment lost to…
cat fight

gentle stroke
in my ear…
cat purrs

stripping cat
of its winter coat…
fuller moon

full moon
mindful of it…
dog howl

evening chill
even the dog leash…
now cold

evening settles
comfort in…
cat’s purr

rest easy
evening brings…
vegan burgers

night sky
opening it up…
magnolia blossoms

lama chants
in spite of it…
temper tantrum

half moon
my mind wonders…
the dark side

backyard spring
last year’s sow…
now poppy plants

by fridge
wait for carrots…
dog burp

evening scattered
across neighbor’s lawn…
cherry blossoms

whispering air
room fills in…
lavender air

shades of blue
i spy in there…
sliver moon

face drenched
this drive brings…
morning sun

turkish coffee
my face seeks warmth…
of the sun

night black
tracing lights…
on the road

unsettled
we settle into…
evening silence

almond blossoms
in my face…
spring is here

after the rains
this morning brings…
feb chills

burn
edges of my nose…
thai chillies

caucus night
we seek quiet of…
sound machine

sunday sun
quietness no more…
she chatters

neighborhood walk
drains gurgle…
overnite rain

friday rain
my ears follow…
ice cream truck

siesta
rude awake…
school is out

japanese incense
my mind infused…
new thoughts

afternoon sun
the walk reveals…
nodes on bare branches

moonlight
the shadows deeper…
in her eyes

cat purr
another stare…
evening settles

afternoon walk
my winter jacket…
darker in rain

moonlight
in hide and seek…
silence

shiver
grass blades do…
morning mist

afternoon goes
among all things…
cat just pooped

after rains
a smile again…
back in left coast

winter evening
around the city…
#NYvalues

pine trees
side on roadside…
xmas must be over

small talk
and in between…
good stout

snow flakes
the wing drenched…
east coast is here

winter rain
washing me over…
new memories

orange clouds
with their fade…
everything must change

morning walk
the corner reveals…
lavender blossoms

gentle move
i settle in…
dog snore

in sync
sandpipers forage…
we walk on

seek again
i find within…
quiet space

breathin’ in
to my evening arms…
dog snout

twilight zone
we sink into…
digital lives

lost voice
appreciating in this rain…
deeper silence

el nino rain
even the dog’s got…
the blues

morning delight
i follow contours of…
fingerling potatoes

strange bother
at friend’s dinner…
dog snore

gentle sing
in my ears…
dog snore

twilight hour
spreading across face…
sun and smile

new year’s eve
same birds in…
different light

rain river
even the dog…
feels them blues

gray skies
my mind insists…
brighter things

traffic lights
stuck in windshield…
ginkgo leaf

twilight walk
ginkgo leaves crunch…
yellow to pale

hard drive drone
this Sunday morning…
things at ease

twilight hour
around the bay…
a hushed silence

brown boxes
cats slip in to…
their new abodes

rains
gentle noise for…
morning meditation

evening sun
grass tones into…
darker yellow

this tuesday
brings old back…
all things considered

twilight hour
cats quieter…
distant train

cars blanketed
in november ritual…
yellow ginkgo leaves

silence persists
my mind relishes…
all things unknown

evening sun
we all reflect…
passage of time

indian meal
so goes another…
thanksgiving

sun stretches
across western horizon…
so does ms. amelie

snow storm
in my own mind…
distant memories

evening walk
dog poop
also cold

neighborhood yellow
our path smattered…
ginkgo leaves

yellow splash
in evening darkness…
ginkgo leaves

fall days
the ‘hood full…
of citrus yellows

wilted rose
in the afternoon…
waiting for rains

ginkgo leaves
chasing them yellows
our shadows

morning hush
among all things…
her gentle snore

seething in
a change of pace…
another day

november morning
even our dog…
seeks the rain

magic
drawing us in…
flamenco jazz

persimmons neighbor’s
just out of reach…
5 for a dollar
