unhurried moments with paul m.

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 3:56 pm

summer sky
one log then another
to cross the river

glacier climb
the last nectarines
from a summer pack

tug of her hand
a spring so small
you could miss it

all its leaves fallen
a tree we were
forbidden to climb

everyone in the circle
shares a poem
white oleander

this line of stars
is some beast’s tail . . .
scent of snow

the tree still draws water
a calendar
declaring a new year

summer grasses
an old blue car
without doors

Mayor in a Hurry: See The Unadulterated Schenectady website for the photo evidence, and the TU Local Politics Blog for Schenectady Mayor Brian U. Stratton’s lame “I made a mistake” explanation for parking his city-issued SUV going the wrong direction on a one-way street in a No Standing zone, just two blocks from my home on Tuesday night. I can say unequivocally that I have seen the Mayor’s vehicle parked unlawfully on more than one occasion in our neighborhood, for long periods, alongside the Stockade Inn. Parking enforcement is quite efficient here in the Stockade; it’s about time the Mayor gets ticketed for his “mistakes” like the rest of us.
