when will we be there
who doesn't ask this question
uttered countless times

stars but for the clouds
moving fast over forest
dark with absent moon

pure from reduction
boulder moved by grains of sand
fill, settle and shift

a transient heart
moving through softening seasons
yet no fixed address

owen helping build his sister's new bed some weeks ago:
this image has absolutely nothing to do with today's haiku.
it just is.

outside of ennui
locating the middle way
inside of frantic

blue sky, sun climbing
summer not alone in bloom
usher in our spring!

Monday, March 24, 2008


snow fall on spring day
but spring no longer waiting
a stirring i feel

Sunday, March 23, 2008


our own spring classic
road, gravel and farmer's field
icy spill as well

Saturday, March 22, 2008


ease into action
from here the day is endless
bitter sweet filling

Friday, March 21, 2008


beauty and ugly
averting gaze nothing gained
both are always there

Thursday, March 20, 2008


by narrow margin
to and fro with kids in tow
forgotten tasks done

Wednesday, March 19, 2008


laughter's gentle lines
bespeak youthful radiance
with a rich life lived

beautiful morning
with its sun high in the sky
snow turn to water

Monday, March 17, 2008


love handles as fuel
still not happy to have them
riding winter off

paddy: from the summer archives

suffer in basement
rather be at BHP
squaring the rear tire

circle in circle
this is the way of the bike
crank and chain and wheel

Friday, March 14, 2008


so happy now home
haiku only remembered
after dishes are done

Thursday, March 13, 2008


where i sit right now
shelter only; home is home
home so late tonight

Wednesday, March 12, 2008


transient home once
the past is not where i dwell
i pass through again

Tuesday, March 11, 2008


early spring dark morning
cold before the sun rises
dawn will come and go

Monday, March 10, 2008


big, gulping, full draughts
have i never really breathed
now i will learn how

Sunday, March 9, 2008


in lieu of haiku
a remembrance of last year
haiku cross postponed

perhaps with spring bloom
letting brethren recover
from altona tour

haiku cross return
with wicked them and sharp pen
by river we ride

[this post was to be a link "in lieu of haiku" but once i heard five syllables emerge i lost control of myself.]

if kept home from school
and pirate persona tires
indiana jones!

Thursday, March 6, 2008


if kept home from school
and in need of persona
a pirate is best

Wednesday, March 5, 2008


i had spare haiku
but now when it is needed
it cannot be found

Tuesday, March 4, 2008


another march comes
to get here i've passed a year
how glad to see march

Monday, March 3, 2008


tumbling paper skip
slanting light gives no shelter
shadow play instead

Sunday, March 2, 2008


out there under snow
winter play indoors will end
fields for soccer

Saturday, March 1, 2008


groggy and tired
but pancakes need to be made
enlightened patience
