Leaving my house

Drowsy-warm honeysuckle 
assails my senses
through the open windows
this too hot July day..

Too hot that is to be cleaning 
empty bedrooms...

'Blow and bother
and hang spring-cleaning'
(I remind myself firmly)
will NOT do today...

Clear emerald light,
soft breeze to ease
my fragile heart and
still my mind -

can't let it go!

summer dawn

silver crescent moon
piercing soft black velvet sky
torn my tired heart

afternoon haiku

scatter of pigeons
grey between midsummer trees
unaccountable heart
