Autumn Haiku #2

Each day shorter now
'recuerda mi corazon'
source of warmth and light

Autumn Haiku #1

spring and summer spent 
like a leaf through autumn now 
blown hard toward year's end

Thursday, April 19, 2012


spiraling to health
love and kindness, the calyx
precious flower, life

4/7/12 #2

sand massages soles
old scars melt, welcome relief
thank you Mama Earth

4/7/12 #1

Perfect sand dollars
Something changed deep in my soul
Left them as they lay


as this day begins
set intention in cross hairs
heart aimed straight at peace

your half plus my half
means one homeless stranger leaves
with a whole sandwich


Life as a construct
Choose with care all elements
Room for leaf and sun

no excuse for cruelty
path of certain fail

inside warm and dry
rain like sapphire lullaby
falls through chill twilight

Sunday, March 25, 2012


outside, life streams by
thinly veiled, a muted roar
curtain filters light

As I sit zazen
Mind turns 'nothing' into 'thing'
Delusion is born


Integral to Self
Didn't realize 'til I stopped
Haiku is my heart

Looks like it's back to one a day or bust.

52 haiku/#3

'ugly" to the bone
still no less a child of God
no child left behind

52 Haiku/#2

Haiku, you're past due
Life and death preempted pen
Glad to have you, now

52 Haiku/ #1

mischievous prayer flag
skips on breeze then suddenly
slaps me on the head
