Mother's Birthday


my mother's birthday
been meaning to call her all day
how much are thoughts worth

I called her first thing today

Sun, then cold showers.
Melting hot, wind and then rain.
Melbourne in the Spring.

Gray geese just standing
around honking and talking

She's cooking tonight
Therapy as much as treat

Make up your damn mind
Sometimes in life you shift gears
But your clutch smells burnt

Calendar haiku: November

Coveted by all,
Turning into such beauty -
The falling red leaves
