no leap year haiku
this day a kind of fiction
just as well i think

Thursday, February 28, 2008


cut flowers given
no longer reach for the sky
what brightness they bring

more ephemeral
post-modern staccato lives
like foam on a wave

Tuesday, February 26, 2008


oh no, haiku time
let me see what can i write
sage and wise must wait

Monday, February 25, 2008


this morning i laughed
i can remember it now
and it makes me smile

west coast crocus bloom
this nation is a fiction
too vast a distance

my home is in order
disorder right here as well
i inhabit both

eschew luxury
i prefer simplicity
and a good thing that

grumpy bear i am
clumsy, surly, full of life
i can see i am

warm air fragrant pine
season's deep white snow sparkles
beautiful day

want to feel alive
let the cold tug on your ears
think of nothing else

Tuesday, February 19, 2008


so, so cold, so cold
did i say cold, so so cold
is hot months away

all those endless drifts
indoors the warmth of friendship
winter can end now

2007's 24hr funfest.

snow swirl below cloud
a sunset and a sunrise
cyclists in circles

Saturday, February 16, 2008


awake from slumber
slowly like a bear in spring
good the day will wait

Friday, February 15, 2008


girded by winter
parasites shattered by cold
leaf awaiting spring

Thursday, February 14, 2008


stand out there too long
merciless late winter cold
and death will find you

the east shall follow
with our family scattered
the west, home to roam

a trail of verses
my sharing haiku daily
one month has now past

Sunday, February 10, 2008


ninety nine years old
settling, shifting, sheltering
much more than four walls

Saturday, February 9, 2008


crack forced by cold wind
flags writhe and shake blessings cast
close to walls a chill

world without borders
when my children are adults
a ride without end

flitting chickadee
your song's sweeter in sun's warmth
soon you will fly north

quickly the wind shifts
cold from the north, the far north
swirling the day's snow

disk swap one was fun
both new music and new friends
what could be better

no morning hiaku
here and i sit evening now
with little to say
