haiku from March 1999
by Gary Warner

by the persimmon bark
my moonshadow
abandoned high school
covered with graffiti
covered with ivy
swings his hammer once
sometimes twice
trumpeter swan
folding and spreading with each step
his great webbed feet
at the bus stop
beneath the misletoe
that killed this tree
listening to the rain
the wet spot on the ceiling
begins to drip
Canadian geese
seven minutes before
my alarm clock
red shouldered hawk
with feathers ruffled
