1.

far beyond me
the clicks
of a brown bat-
emailing
my distant lover


2.

before rain
he finds an empty
garage...
this wayward cat
with a missing tail


3.

the scar
Dad never mentioned
visible now
with his new
haircut


4.

alone
in this autumn field
only now
do I notice
Sagittarius


5.

autumn clearance
my sister
buys a Buddha
to match
her room


6.

tai chi practice
in the backyard
I sink
into the harmony
of roots and mud


7.

arguing zen
up the mountain-
a set
of coyote prints
going nowhere


8.

a beetle
scrambling
from the bread box-
this too
is autumn


9.

I wonder
what old man Basho
would think-
oak leaves cluster
in a lopsided pile


10.

her sneeze
in the middle
of our kiss-
I give myself over
to autumn love
Autumn tanka series :heart:

"old man"-term of endearment
