Mobile home parks
along the Florida's coast
catch the storm's eye.

Weeping willows
upon autumn's return
wipe away tears.

Leaf-sewn swatches
of yellow, reds and browns
blanket a restless earth.

Squirrels' autumn harvest
tucked away in a stump
a late winter's snack.

Robin Buehler lives in Mays Landing, New Jersey.

HOMAGE TO P.P.

The tune you are hearing
is and is not the
Beautiful Tennessee Waltz.

by Esther Cameron 2004

Autumn leaves
harvest moon
the alley cat stalks
a tuna can

A scent of hazelnut
percolates
long way home . . .
a jack-o-lantern flickers
on the newell post.

Roused from summer lethargy
By the frosted edges
Of a late summer’s day

by Kitsune Miko 2004

Catfoot alarm,
Purring crescendo
Kneading breakfast...

Cocaine
Brightly white
Pure as the driven snow,
Deadly freezing

Half a man came dancing
With his shrunken legs
And inner light

Sensitive fingers
Skimming dots and bumps
Read a body poetic

In search of you
I found me
Asleep on the couch
Safely removed
From it all

by Kitsune Miko 2004
