Haiku to you Thursday: “Nip”

The nip of winter /

a small feral animal /

happy to see you.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Pain”

Pain is a song /

whose melody is as true /

as its words are inadequate.

[Editor’s note: a modified haiku structure, varying a little from the 5 syllable, 7 syllable, 5 syllable structure. Still, I believe it carries the spirit of a haiku.]

Haiku to you Thursday: “Things”

My things talk to me. /

My fellow humans do not. /

“Beep,” I say to you.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Rope”

Before the morning sun, /

we hurl our love into space: /

a rope to pull us along.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Alms”

Lawnmowers silenced /

Crippled grass cries out for rain: /

alms for the parched Earth.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Blanket”

Sun pushes aside /

clouds that blanket the valley: /

morning greets the Earth.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Wings”

Fall dips into day. /

Wings open unto the sky: /

migration returns.
