Stolen Moment

Slipped to serendip
No friction dereliction
Shoulders gripped to grind

Moonlit Silhouette

Those curves of yours twist
thin Italian mountain roads
my pistons popping

Sunday Gold

Sunday's gold shines bright
but she burns twice as quickly
Shorter days indeed

Wheezing has become
the essence of my being.
*throws pity party*

Wednesday, October 26, 2011


Silence is the sound,
When breathing slows and dreams loom
Against darkened moon.

By Whose Authority?

Neglected coffee

Duty trounces solitude

Wednesday self-governs

The Last Five

Fifteen bright fireworks
Burst lonely against the sky
These are the last five

Austen's lure

Ghosts of Jane Austen
Tease my dreams then fly by light
NaNo plot is gone

Bear cubs

Bears ate my pumpkin
Even the brainy one yet
I still want to pet

What stress?

Deadlines are looming
There is no escape from NaNo
October flew by

Stuffy, sneezy - cough!
No dwarves here, just sickie me.
Hoo's cold has traveled?

She abandons hope
Hears little, feels less, sobbing
He should have been more


Lungs stuffed packed jet black
Years picking drilling dying
None will make diamonds


Wings worn, muscles ache
Wax oozes across his back
Flown too close again

Sausages and Hot Cakes

Pop, snap and sizzle,
From iron pan to the plate.
Syrup to drizzle.

It Burns

Raw, screaming, burning.
My soul for soothing relief.
Pass the honey, please.


Sad uncle depressed
Trapped under hooch bottle cork
Abyss bottom reached


Quaked out of her boots
Fury raged toward fast demise
Thank god for hair pins!

Ligne Maginot

Old bones groan thrown 'round
Youth still wasted on the young
Wins one like a boss

Taking stock

Bones filled with marrow,
Awaits bubbling crock pot.
Pot's switch left on 'off'.

Elephant sits still
'Tween two chairs in the small room
Asking who'll blink first


A space far from home
Clatter and clack the steep heels
Time stolen to dance


So blows Autumn wind
Away the golden slivers
Lake yawning new snow

Saturday, October 15, 2011


Cool wind lifts the leaves,
Swirl of color, flying hair.
At last, fall is here.

Friday, October 14, 2011


Big Bang Theory's on.
Drinking Captain and Pepper.
Friday night's begun.


Heels four stories thin
Click click click to velvet rope
"Hello, Big Fella."

That Moment

Flushed cheeks, gasp for air
Vertebrae curved a crescent
Tensed fingers squeeze flesh


Pass does the wild wind
'Cross cool chrome cylinder, this
one time, at band camp ...

Do you hear that beep?
A new friend for me to keep.
'Enter", now complete.


Where are the haikus?
I feel so all alone here,
Talking to myself...

The Mystique of Writing

Then frantic scribbling til dawn.
Panic: my best work.

Silly Hoo.

I can haz haiku
Because Hooey told me to.
Hoo should know better.

A Whole New Game

A fresh new look brings
Fresh (sort of new) friends, ready
to share their haiku.

Back in the Saddle

My brain is rusty
Cobwebs fill the crevices
I will make it write.
