Haiku - (2015)
for medium voice and piano
Across the pasture
a vast space of grey/white air.
Open, cold, lonely.
Age-weathered hands wait
to rake the dry, red/brown leaves
from the garden beds.
I turn brown to grey.
Autumn claims my summer life.
I'm forever changed.

Written 5 April 2013, this little set of verses speaks a
detailed picture of a moment as of a lifetime.
Set simply in three strophes with only the slightest
variation, the accompaniment begins in a lower octave, repeats and octave
above, and then returns to the lower for the last strophe.
The score is available as a free PDF download, though any major commercial
performance or recording of the work is prohibited without prior arrangement
with the composer. Click on the graphic below for this piano-vocal score.
