haiku retrospective xiii

gray california.
incoming front brings squabbles.
low pressure system.

people do better
under pressure (atmosphere).
oh, what that implies.

on the western front
all's quiet before the storm.
ears prick for thunder.

dandelion clocks
close as the weatherglass falls.
birds perch in the shrubs.

poetry gate creaks.
disused syllables flow slow,
winter molasses.

out of tune haiku
walks on unsteady stilt legs,
mind out of practice.

22 April 1997
