Haiku

I Haiku, Do You?

I am rice paper /
Strong, transparent, and yet I /
Dissolve in the rain.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Small palmfuls of love /
Savory, sweet oniony /
Chicken kutlyeti!

INVISIBLE_TEXT

How do you know /
What you feel is real? /
Don’t trust my heart to tell me.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

O Serenity! /
Feels so divine late at night /
Warm face, cool pillow.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Ringing in the hours /
Over the years of my life /
Family clock, old friend.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Swallowed up, alone /
Loneliness is the worst curse /
My hair, damp with tears. (for dear Randi)

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Sneaky paws, reaching /
Eyes fixated on the yarn /
Mohair, cat magnet.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Home alone today /
Wish you came by, but again… /
So sad you cancelled.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

DSL out too /
A neighbor is unsecured /
Thanks for free wifi!

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Stupid telephone /
No dialtone or service /
Must wait till Monday.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Mouthwatering meals /
The pleasures of plate and hearth /
Lovingly described.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Travelling by book /
To France in the high country /
L’Auberge, I love you.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Flopping like a fish /
Out of water on a pier /
Air mattresses suck.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

My head hurt all day /
Because of no sleep last night /
Read two books instead.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

CL-Lying in bed late /
Thinking about you, my love /
Are you awake too?

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Puffs of cat hair float /
like snowflakes in a forest /
Time for summer shed.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Burning a path down /
Tequila echoes the pain /
In my lonely heart.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Steaming bowl of pho /
Rich broth, noodles shimmering /
Foggy summer night.

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Contemplating life /
Slowly stirring the pudding /
Ahhh, tapioca!

INVISIBLE_TEXT

So sad and lonely /
Can’t get out of bed most days /
Wonder why I’m here…

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Bursting in my mouth /
Pure sunshine captured inside /
Juicy tomato!

INVISIBLE_TEXT

Oh! Too much bourbon /

Does me in every time /

What was I thinking?

INVISIBLE_TEXT

I love Saturdays /

Get to sleep in a little /

Nice eggy breakfast.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT


I’ll be as safe as /

in your arms darling, he cries /

Into the darkness…. (inspired by a line from Andromeda Strain)

Andromeda Strain /

Too bad it is on so late /

Such an awesome flick.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Little wee fishy /

Wriggling in the water /

Don’t look now, the cat!

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Hard to love someone /

When he doesn’t feel the same /

Trying to forget.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Where did the time go /

My youth and beauty fading /

Lost time, lost chances.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Alone at night now /

Afraid to sleep, so tired/

I hug the pillow.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

I like a long pull /

Hot creamy inky sweetness /

Yummy espresso

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Walking Market Street /

My heart aches with lonliness /

Foggy Saturday

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Thinking silly things /

Creative juices flowing /

Blue corn atole.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Warm sun on my face /

Winds with cold fangs of ice /

Spring in Santa Fe.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Smell of chocolate /

Floats outside Kakawa House /

Happiness awaits.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Car haiku is fun /

Annoying Laura today /

“Silly hal” she cries!

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Jake he bellows out /

Echoing down the dark street /

Late at night alone

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Roar of garbage truck /

Sirens wailing in the night /

Sleeping restlessly.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Pogo is snoring /

So loudly while on his back /

White paws stretching high.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Without the storm you /

Cannot see the beautiful /

Rainbow at the end

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Bittersweet, creamy /

Heaven melting in your mouth /

Chocolate Salon.

INVISIBLE_TEXT
INVISIBLE_TEXT

Truffles, candy bars

Vodka, liquor and cocoa /

Too much chocolate?
