Haiku to you Thursday: “Know”

“Do you know the truth?” /

the street corner preacher asks. /

I point to the curb.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Watch”

I watch you sleeping /

the drugs doing all I can’t — /

except loving you.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Soft shell”

I move your blanket. /

The soft shell against night’s chill /

has exposed your skin.

Random act of poetry: “Evening”

Oh, heaven in my bed
I lay me down when enough is said.
It has been a tiring day:
with bills and chores and problems that stay.
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray my slumber be not too steep.
For if I die before I wake
there will be hell to pay, make no mistake!

[Okay, so it’s not a writing tip. Been a busy day, including an unexpected bill for $600. And now I’m in the middle of baking a Valentine’s cake for my daughter’s class tomorrow. –Poem and commentary by David E. Booker]

Haiku to you Thursday: “Runaway”

The sun runs away. /

Ice reflects the orbless sky. /

Stars wander alone.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Dr. Godot”

Wearing paper pants /

waiting for Doctor Godot /

Kafka is my nurse.
