Flying Haiku

not more of the sun,
more of our smallness; sunset
at 10,000 feet

above lone star state
from dallas to san antone
horizon’s red glowing


“silent, in the dark” – Senryu / Haiku

silent, in the dark
twenty bodies breathe. in. out.
armed intruder drill

I do confess there was a little phone watching that was not strictly kosher in such things, but the silence was impressive, because it is so rare.
