  • Give any human being five random objects, and she'll make a pattern out of them. That's what the human mind does, create patterns. Anything that has been around for a very long time, experienced by a great many human beings, is going to be intricately patterned indeed. And so the year and its seasons has a traditional pattern, turning in a great wheel, with each major point in the turn associated with its own meaning and myth.

    My Poem Cycle

    Groundhog in the snow
    startled by his shadow.
    Promise him roses.

  • Groundhog Roast

  • Silent white mountain.
    Splash of cardinals feeding.
    I yield my ski run.

    Spring Equinox
  • Awakening

  • Maypoles are symbols
    for that part of human minds
    that gets off on symbols.

    May Day
  • Beltane

  • Trees go down to the water
       like deer.
    Mountains go down to the water
       like bears.

  • Following Memories

  • Hairy pirate guys
    run past me every August.
    I've never caught one.

  • Seafair Haiku ->

  • Thunder in the dark.
    Quiet within your arms.

    Autumn Equinox
  • One Seattle Street, Hold the Musicians

  • Now all threatening shadows
    into warmth and light.

  • Shadow Dancer
  • Lacroix
  • Winter Solstice
