Haiku

 

all that
remains of his dream...
new tombstone

 

 

honing a poem...
I think over the inside
of a Hallmark card

 

 

breezy beach
I see the world for two
in a sandcastle

 

 

pondering haiku...
cherry blossoms scatter
in the morning sun

 

 

out in the cold
my shadow walks
with me

 

 

silence punctuated
by falling snowflakes…
another dawn

 



rewriting haiku...
the veins on my right hand
bulge

 

 

Haiku Sequence

 

Femme Fatale

 

startled doves
fill the spring sky
her hand in mine

she takes
a huge bite from an apple
my mouth on hers

wedding notice
her photo still placed on
the glass tabletop

Easter morning
as promised, I pour myself
a glass of wine

 

 

Four Seasons of Love

 

watching the lake
swallow a spring sun
her crimson lips

campfire…
the summer stars in her eyes
warm me up

maple leaves
falling all around us
we stop holding hands

cold moon…
the twin size bed creaks
under our bodies

 

 

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter … and Spring

 

hare moon
a snake slithers
into tall grass

around and around
the pomegranate trees
a boy chases a girl

a maple leaf
zig-zags to the sidewalk
cicada's cries

snowfall
yesterday fifteen inches
today three
