autumn twilight
in her eyes
the glow of Facebook

how strange that it’s in

Senryu for Monday, October, 2016

awake in the dark—
the crickets’ chirp interrupts
my tinnitus

summer leaves
autumn leaves

Senryu for Friday, September 30, 2016

autumn morning walk:
the sound of prairie wind
in my earbuds
