lyles to the rescue

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 8:48 pm

Woe is me.   I spent a sunny, brisk Spring day, at my

laptop writing about contingency fees.  Even if you had

more fun than that, you get to enjoy five poems from

Peggy Willis Lyles, along with the (re)tired haikuEsq.


computer weary



            the way the master’s brush

strokes the wings







dawn light

on white camelias

the fever breaks








attic sun

from Grandmother’s gown

a grain of rice





a backhoe

stalled in goldenrod–

low sun





fishing pole f






the net

into deep water

clearing sky

the roof sweeper
stands still…
evening cherry blossoms
