abstract glory

abstract autumn



bleed red and purple

leaves sizzle across cool sky

autumn’s frenzied dance

Rumbling winter storm – 

Ents are dancing with their wives – 

ancient limbs entwined

celebrate bark-won battles

snow settles on grateful trees

spring notes

Playing with tan renga form at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

forgotten flute

shadows of leaves
cover the open holes
her flute forgotten

she dances with woodland nymphs

notes floating on music of trees

decades of dance


courtly quadrille folk dance

waltzing matilda, she cancan

charlie does the charleston

c’mon baby, let’s twist

square skip your pardner

locomotion make love potion

disco dancin’, groovy prancin’

strut like king tutankhamen

play macarena on ocarina

from bebop to hip-hop,

music gonna move us!


A quadrille is a folk dance or a poem of exactly 44 words, not including title.  At dVerse Poets Pub today, we’re writing quadrilles with the word “skip”.

my friend and i

thrill to quadrille

in beginning scene

of Tchaikovsky’s

beloved Nutcracker

when professional

ballet company

dazzles our rural

community and

invites local youth

to dance dreams staged

as mice and soldiers,

angels, snowflakes,

candy canes or


and we have tickets!!

time passages

Linking to Carpe Diem’s time glass challengedancing leaves

leaves let go of fear

fall free, float on air, swirl down

celebrate changes.


letting go self-consciousness,

we can twirl life’s dance with joy!
