Spontaneous Summer Haiku

DeerOaksDucks1.7.16.13

forget daily life
go to the pond
and sit there

this place
as perfect as
any other

alone
in the park
surrounded by leaves

sublime the ducks
gliding through
reflections

sketching in the park
suddenly I understand
the language of ducks

there’s no end
to this richness
no end

shadows pour
down oak leaves
over the summer pond

close your eyes
and listen
to the green
