Haiku Archive, part 2

I was hoping to do more to observe National Poetry Month than haiku, but never managed to write anything new. Just to get something in before the month ends, I’ll present some of the haiku that I’ve written and posted on Twitter. (I should be taking my lawn mower to the shop for repairs, but it’s raining.)
These are not related to each other, by the way.

Tiny blossom face
reaching skyward for a kiss
while soil nurtures roots.

Words, paper, ink glue.
From the sparrow’s point of view
the book is empty.

There may be no god.
We should still act decently;
Wildflowers bloom still.

Washing windows, I
open one and admit a
puff of autumn breeze.

A long and damp slog.
Sun rules from behind curtain.
Hope only for a smile.

Clouds tonight remind
me I’ve not seen new mountains
in quite a long time.

Curtains of clouds part;
late sunshine, warms up crowd for
brilliant red sunset.

Red breast feathers puffed,
perched in late autumn snowfall.
I’m not meant for this.

Bounding russet blur;
fox stops near, glances, departs.
The watcher, observed.

Ice, no; snow, no; wind,
no; sun, no; cold, no; warm, no.
Today’s weather: gray.

Wasn’t long ago,
breezes blew in early spring.
April snow flurries.

Haiku Archive, part 1


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
