Japanese garden . . .
a bamboo staff left
in the bamboo

this house
is my last home
bougainvilleas in bloom

Naomi Y. Brown

 

the flatness
of watermelon seeds
August dusk

peony bud
cut for the grave . . .
wren song all day long

mole crabs
in the palms of my hands
the retreating surf

moving day –
their pregnant cat
left behind

midday heat
snap of the shoeshiner's rag
against the toe

the waiting room –
an ant on my lapel
cleans its antennae

afternoon warmth –
the reflections of horse heads
in muddy trough water

the empty halves
of a sea shell
