Red And Other Colors

by Adam D. Fisher, 2023

A haiku and two tankas:


Red maple next to

shimmering water flames in 

early October. 


Red cardinals, black

and white chickadees, brown and 

tan sparrows, yellow 

gold finches, house finches’ red 

heads, eat seeds at my feeder.


Red kidney, black, white 

cannelli, tan garbanzos:

beans soak in a pot

like multi-colored pebbles 

in the water at the beach.
