HAUNTED

Old family photos


Haunted

Her hands, small
as a child’s (one digit
oddly curved), wrinkled,
veined, freckled with age,
extend at the end
of sleeves (mine)

Her face -- forehead furrowed,
lips pursed, intelligent eyes --
(collaboration of love, pain, pride,
impatience, humor, fear, mistrust
frustration) superimpose
over mien (mine);

She’s hiding in my mirror,
biding in blood and bits, in skin
and bone, heart, throat, gut,
grey matter; residing in nearly
everything that matters
in me

Ransacked (a haiku)


all photos by PSC / 2012


  Ransacked, burglarized,
put by for coming winter
autumn’s yield plundered

SHE TICKLES COLOR ( a haiku)


PSC / 2012
 She tickles color
trees giggle in autumn glee
glorious laughter
