with a start
the first haiku
of the month
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
that above!
is that the limit
of dreams?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
summer dreams:
all that remains
not yet grey
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
her slip ...
the susurrus 
of her lips
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
Cold
 
 
cold snap
what's left of warmth
in embers 
 
oh! the words that do escape
hang too long in the air
 
left over
from far brighter days
an apple core
 
deeper into winter
the heat pump hums for me
 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
ordinary time:
I bite into the death
that sustains me
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
writing
into a winter night
headless chickens
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
drone whine:
is this too
a song?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
slug slime
the daily examen
of my path
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
losing flavour
all the salt licked
from my wounds
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
all the trees 
tucking elegies
into dark wings
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
so few words
how much of all this
can they take?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
the silence:
school bells tolling 
early death
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
more than one
nail holes hammered through
tree shadows
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
a bell tolls
in sympathy
with its age
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
climate change
a butterfly
somewhere
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
a haiku yet
after successive
resoundings
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
her sari
coiling the wormhole
of our origin
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
frost after noon
the scent of otherness
closes around
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
what is this
that seeps through the gaps
in the chant?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
baby babble . . .
neon words crawl across
an urban sprawl
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
screw loose sir?
a hooker's invitation
into madness
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
silver-tongued dawn
a  hatchling opens its eyes
to the world's edge
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
dead-end street
autumn and winter
face to face
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
first quarter
moons bud-swelling
her blouse
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
exposing
layer on layer
old sea levels
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
rebel yell
Groucho dusts off
his manifesto
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
word by word
a new beginning
with each sound
 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
earth shadow
a swinging voter
darkens the poll
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
encircling me
the hiss
of her eyes
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
sky map app
I end the universe
with a swipe
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
raid 0
the all or nothing
of our love
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
waxing moon
harsh reality
loses its edge
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
plum tree
what is your status
today?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
in amber
the lifeless comfort
of the familiar
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

dilute haiku for the masses

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

denatured wilderness

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
slowpoke sun
time's after-shadow
so still
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
all at once
this pale blue dot
at its end.
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
winter shelter . . .
plaiting vowels and consonants
against the silence
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
dulled blood lines
'the first cut is the deepest'
I tell her
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
future perfect —
a white coffin cradling 
his birth cry
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
fog breath
a patina of me
back at me
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
first love
I enter her taste
of pears
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
poet's bridge
light making light
of the other
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
neverness —
light-melt
in candle tears
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
age-old aches
silence rolled into stone
here is light
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
'yes' he exclaims
at the very end of
the verbal bloom
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
neck shivers!
the sound of a haiku
as it leaves the page
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
new moon
a noumenonal
becoming
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
