中秋佳节,北京,纽约市 : Mid-Autumn Festival, Beijing, New York [for R. W.]

sharing sweet moon cakes
midst warm thoughts of our friendship –
you, there, and I, here

expectancy near dawn

crickets serenade
amid tall grass damp with dew
waiting for sunrise

being fully human

honor 9/11 victims –
yes. and all those innocents
we’ve killed since
…amen!

senryu – leading by example?

Clinton and Trump both
“true Christians” – so they say…
Glad I don’t believe!

senryu – state of the union, or megalomania outré

greedy racist fool
v. perjured war-criminal –
in their graves, Founders spin…

a query

no tears left have I
nor a star to wish upon…
shall love yet worst death

*    *    *

fervor at first light

your head, torso, arms
silhouetted above me:
making love near dawn
