('all my stories' 
first appeared in 
Gabriel Sawicki's 
a haiku journal)

    In the evening when the trees
    are in recovery from sunlight
    the color and sound of new leaves
    passes between worlds, more worlds
    than we can bear in this life.
    Not needing a name to find their way,
    the trees emerge at first light
    with a fluttering hello, simple one:
    you new in town?

    hanging low
    the willow
    with the

                 writing haiku
                 while I walk,
                 before I know it -

                 but where?

                             like tombstones
                             the rocks remember
                             each flower that died                                    

a praia dorme
         a maré, um corbertor
                   a lua assiste

the beach sleeps
         the tide, a blanket
                    the moon watches

         behind Brooklyn Bridge
         walls of gray mist hide skyline
         delusional rain

 Chanukah candles
 8 days of light
 defeat the darkness

        poet's driven habits

      ignoring everyone else
         those talking arts

I wonder when I

Forgot to sing my love song

Maybe time lost love
