Shadorma 323

stick of gum
the paper wrapper
peeled away
Silver foil
an inscrutability
your fingers pry up


Haiku 859

an egg-shaped woozy
rolling around in my head –
that stuff sure is strong


Haiku 860

a hiss of snowflakes
and gone no thanks to your voice
calling my old name


Haiku 861

my own blue feather
a broken-off scrap I left
here for you to find
