Haiku 11/6

against the deep blue
the faint twinkle of three stars
shine bright in the night

Haiku 5.19

breath on my shoulder
dawn sneaks past the window blinds
I lay motionless

5.13

a black cat slinking
wrapping her body around
corners like Dali

5.8

crabapple blossoms
thickly blanket underneath
stirred by a crisp breeze

5.5 haiku sonnet

from two yards over
the lawnmower still buzzes
after the sunset

we watch bats swooping
their silent acrobatics
a tango at dusk

the cicadas sing
over our conversation
drowning out the words

I watch your tongue flick
gathering the amber drops
along the smooth rim

we sip tequila slowly
warmed more by heated glances

Haiku 5…4

the scent of your skin
combined with freshly cut grass
intoxicating

Not quite the noise, Janet! But related!

building our first home – haiku

Oops. Tanka. But I don’t want to mess with the title and have it resend.

in the holly bush
outside my open window
two robins loudly
discuss the many details
of their first nest’s construction

4.30

pink cherry blossoms
dripping onto the wet grass
mimicking the rain

4.28

muted morning light
thunder rumbling far away
rain taps on the roof

the candle flickers
casting your profile shadow
on the bedroom wall

Haiku 4.26

after the cold rain
north wind ruffles the surface
of every puddle
