Windows to the soul . . .
Melancholy and tear-blurred
Like rain-spattered glass.

Faded love letters
Unearthed by a pack rat on
A rainy Sunday.

Spent drowsing in a hammock
Daydreaming of you.

Crickets chirp soft, secret songs
While frogs serenade.

A daily haiku
Can be a challenge even
For a geek like me.

God gave us free will.
Yet He knows my every step.
A bit confusing.

Rancid cheese and old corn chips.

Scurrying up the sidewalk
Looking for a meal.

Confronted. Your ghost
Appeared to me today, but

Mother duck and her babies
Race to the water.

People are plucked out like weeds
When they make mistakes.

So very hungry.

Joking, not realizing
Your pain while I laughed

Flitter among the flowers,
Glide on fragant wind.

Memories lit by fireflies,
Blackberry scented.

Clear sky meets water
Blending blues into one like
My heart and your soul.

Curtains cover the windows
Of my soul. Good night.

Sweaty and red faced.
Heart beats pound through your body.
Another hot flash.
