Haiku to you Thursday: “Turkey”

Pieces of eaten bird. /

Crumbs of rolls and pumpkin pie. /

Second coming scouts.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Free fall”

Free falling in love /

I find the stars within reach /

and my heart far away.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Costumed”

Layers of delight /

costumed deeply in longing. /

Bright, your fetching smile.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Fall wind”

The wind and the truth /

whirl with autumn’s brittle edge. /

Leaves and love are brown.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Honk, if you”

Honk if you love _____ /

echoes the faded, empty /

bumper sticker heart.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Puddles”

Puddles in the rain. /

Transitory friendships. /

Earth absorbs them all.
