gray and wet,
but the ginkgo’s golden leaves
are sun enough

:

October 27, 2009

cool again —
have the ginkgo leaves
begun to turn?

Halloween decorations —
removing cobwebs
from the cobwebs

around the driveway:
fallen leaves gathering
into themselves

autumn dawn:
for a few minutes longer
the trees are black

October 22, 2009

the cats, too:
leaving the spider by the kitchen
sink alone

his head —
the cat understands
these words are a pillow

October 20, 2009

pouring rain;
the dog looks away
from the open door

October 19, 2009

forehead
resting on warm palms;
more coffee

:

October 16, 2009

the rain in the trees —
dim constellations
on my eyelids
