Fishing on Easter

Leaping heavenward
the trout has the grace to miss
a fly well cast.

Rapture

As the moon crosses the sun
fireflies briefly appear
like souls set free
from the dark earth.

Tanka

A hawk skims the trees
as a squirrel’s mad dash through the oaks
shakes loose yellow leaves
marking its escape down the block
one step ahead of the night.

The Bowler Rolls a Strike

Releasing the ball
his hand continues upward
like he’s saluting the formation
standing steadfast to the end.
