Rain Song

Morning mizzle kisses the umbrella silently
our boots crunch...crunch...crunch lane gravel
a pine we pass beneath interjects a riff of
fat drum drops plop plopping on taunt nylon.

A Prosperous Year for Daddy Longlegs

A brand new six story prey cafe
has sprung up overnight in my
dining room’s southeast corner,
the patient proprietor waiting inverted
beneath the third floor parlor scattered 
with crumbs of previous patrons.

Draining Pickles

Thin dill slices, bits of garlic and
black peppercorns swirl clockwise
below the dripping plastic fork.

September Hawthorn

Amongst the inch long thorns
California quail tchuck and forage 
black wrinkled berry like fruits -
brown seeds in a pea sized skin 
of slightly sweet fruit leather.

Where Ginger Tea Tingles

Back middle on top of tongue
along edge and tip of tongue
roof of mouth at the rear
opening of the throat all round.
