Kawabata on the Shore
Reading Palm-of-the-Hand stories
at the beach;
a car-crash
in the parking-lot.

The Urge occurs!
I tip-toe to (someone's) flip flops
to trek through the back yard,
to make my exchange with nature.
The rain has rent the grass
into islands, caught between seas;
sandals wasn't a wise choice,
as I step and slosh and
to the barn.
There my eye moves from
yellow liquid to yellow lark;
"I don't know really
what a lark is," I say to myself,
"but I can't recall a canary
quite like this one."
Feet wet, walking back
I wonder, "how long
'til Dad fixes the toilet?"

Sounds of the koto;
a white moth
descends from the lamp.

Haikuthon, May 2010
May Twenty-Second
an unusual sight-
gray sky
yellow earth
May Twenty-First
moving my fingers
the back of my hand
dances from inside
May Twentieth
do words come from
the mouth,
or the ear?
May Nineteenth
toilet troubles--
tiny spider
hangs from her web
May Eighteenth
jittery bookworm
browsing the menu
at the library penny sale
May Seventeenth
blue and gray
color the landscape
May Sixteenth
through broken sunlight-
petals in the wind
in the distance
May Fifteenth
flying slowly
against traffic
May Fourteenth
circulating web pages
the rosary slides
on my shoulder
May Thirteenth
crawling on the couch
out the corner of my eye
May Twelfth
lazy spring day
"Phenomenology of Spirit"
heavier than it looks
May Eleventh
May Tenth
two birds
in the driveway
May Ninth
I turn for a moment
without a trace
May Eighth
green trees and grass
just outside the window-
admiring while urinating
May Seventh
grandmother wind,
bustling, blowing,

Cutting through curtains-
Midnight lightning
After the lightning,

On my way out--
Hanging from the lintel

a storm?
he opens his eyes-
first snow

Sunday, Nov. 8, 2009
the sun glows orange
and fades
behind the trees
orange erupts
into pink and lavender
burnt wood
on an autumn evening
the smell of incense

I haven't been very active but that won't be a continuing trend. With access to PS again, my files from my other computer (that went capoot last October), and coming out of a slump, I hope to update more and comment and contribute more. For example, to :iconthe-haiku-club:. Woo!

I really want this to be a good year for me- we'll see!

Clicked on random deviant and it sent me to you! Just passing by and flipping through other deviant's work, looking for inspiration. I write primarily non-melodramatic free verse poetry, something that I hope even people who aren't lit fanatics can enjoy. Just in case you're interested :)
