six haiku for mid-December


    year's
        end and the playground's empty seats— 
            swinging

    97: December 6th

    still
        standing among the stumps—the ugly
            spruce

    98: December 9th


    snow
        slips limb to limb—evening slips
            away

    99: December 13th

    just
        the way her hair turns and twists—
            December

    100: December 16th

    winter
        mists—neighbors' lights barely
            touch

    101: December 20th

    like
        Basho—I begin to think a bowl is
            enough

    102: December 23rd

three haiku for the start of December


    early
        winter's moonlight—the bones
            shine

    94 November 25th 

    leaves
        in the sidewalk's ice—walking
            alone

    95 November 29th 2021 

    one
        crow after another and another—night
            falling
