couple
holding hands
on their mobiles 

            .

Thanksgiving ~
the hawk and field mouse
spy each other

            .

oh, summer sand fly!
not even you out there
on the desert moon

            .

cold damp hut ~
hundreds of my relatives
live here

            .

healing old wounds ~
hospital
visiting time

            .

in the secret garden ~
pollinating trees
and bedding plants

            .

to Spring!
opening
a Bud

            .

children
on the trampoline
spring again

            .

frozen track to Auschwitz –
as I pass over
echoes in the rails

            .

piles of plastic toys ~
missing
my old rocking horse
