how many mantras

before enlightenment

a sideways glance—

one strawberry plant



in midsummer

everyone shivering

around the fire


children's laughter

amidst the ruins

flourishing grass

Painting Sunlight,

A Trilingual Canadian Haiku Anthology


Ottawa, Ontario, 2015

You tell me everyone is leaving on different ships. Your thoughts uncomplicated as you do not censure the edges of now and to-come.  You insist that you have preserved everything. Have you included the memories of your father humming Bolero, your twin sisters shifting in unison to the beat? I note that you are one whose footprints step slowly across the sea-dunes and I wonder how do you understand a default place?  A migration?  An immigration?    From America you write to say this is what it means to dip my fingers into the waves.  I’m touching home.
