C. Avery


chasing off the squall--
the pole star
  above all the traffic
starlings whistle
back and forth
sheltering a run-away
the stone wall
overgrown in honeysuckle
  from the one leaf
still floating
perfect circles
giant bamboo
groaning in the gully . . .
a moonless night

C. Avery lives on the Big Island of Hawaii, having recently moved to the Hilo side from the Kona side. Avery, a practicing astrologer, enjoys the challenges of learning HTML, mounting a photo website, and writing haiku.
