June Selection 4 & 5

June Selection #4

soprano cicada sings a constant chorus
alto cicada chimes in a staccato rhythm

lightning bug zig zags here and there
heightening anticipation for the next glow

smell of recent cut grass lingers on,
one half-hearted bark from a distant dog

looming just over the evening horizon
the bright presence of a steadfast friend

----Kirk Rhoads

June Selection # 5

Welcome to Buddhaland!
Your luggage is lost,
But not to worry:
You'll die of shock
At the funhouse mirrors.
