The color of what you remember
of your wedding dress.
When the mice get into the flour
the bread is lumpy for days.
The more butter you add,
the longer it takes
to rise. Kneed it
until it looks like soft fists
then cover it with a damp towel.
After it rises, score it once.
It will grow up with a scar

Stolen Haiku

Sleeping under the stars
the smallest noise wakes me:
the laughter of the rain on the leaves.

Miserable autumn!
Even the oaks cling to their leaves
an extra hour.
