When the Door Closes

My secret life as a poet, writer, photographer…

Photographs

Over & Over

Footprint on Sand

Crashing swells erase
impressions on sand I make,
over and over.

Desert Weather – a Haiku

Death Valley

Tempest clouds the sky
and drowns the valley in floods,
then sun shines brightly.

Untitled Haiku

Desert in Winter II

Crisp skies without clouds.
Nose smarts inhaling cold winds.
Desert winter hike.

Clarity

Desert in Winter

Clouds gather swiftly –
pouring rain, biting winds –
still, clear skies follow.

Half-Light

Shadow of Leaves on Leaf

Twilight falls slowly:
shadows lengthening on leaves,
green fading to night.

*Sorry, I just realized I published the unedited version of my haiku in the first instance of posting. (Yikes!) This is the final version.

Kitchen Window

Kitchen Window

Shadows retreat to
cooled corners as light shines through –
the kitchen window.

Spring

Orchid_Macro

Soon after the rain
dew drips from petals slowly –
amaranthine Spring.

Winter Fog

Winter in Crater Lake.jpg

Fog conceals briefly
naked trees, empty branches –
then cold sun rises.

Sorrow – a Haiku

Bare Orchid Stalk

Sorrow’s passing waits
only for Time whose schedule
no one understands.
