Haiku & Photography

1,876.

Wait to interview:

Life’s better now that games are

At our fingertips.

~

1,877.

Festive lights linger

And pervade the night with ghosts

Of passing street cheer.

Bougainvillea Instagram

1,878.

In between my chores

Skyrim calls – dragon slaying

Amongst house cleaning.

~

1,879.

Tools come through the post,

Encouraging craft in the

Building days ahead.

~

1,880.

Sunday’s winter chill

Stops neither birds nor me in

Our morning movements.

~

1,881.

Early morning rest

Is what the doctor orders.

I hate being sick.

~

1,882.

She likes to lay on

Everything that’s mine, staring

Up with sweet brown eyes.

~

1,883.

A hot bowl of soup,

Homemade and filled with healing.

Downton and some rest.

~

1,884.

Memories of home,

Frozen like photographs that

Flicker on my mind.

~

1,885.

I’m starting to feel

Better; stew on the stove; lunch

All American.

~

1,886.

A hearty stew and

Some small accomplishment make

A healthy morning.

~

1,887.

Orientations

And Trainings are not offers.

Or is it just me?

~

1,888.

Engines and Ravens

Suffer not for words; Silence

Wraps around me.

Poppies Instagram

1,889.

Orion, I wait

In the land of setting suns.

Commuters head home.

~

1,890.

I’m soaked in morning

And the call of ravens as

Commuters head to work.

~

1,891.

The canvas and day

Fill with color; the sun starts

it’s short, downward arc.

~

1,892.

Haunting the old grounds

With tendrils of memories;

We’re all passing shades.

~

1,893.

In the early hours,

It’s just the keyboard and me,

Clicking lividly.

~

1,894.

The electric lights

Reflect the heavenly sky;

The stars are like me.

~

1,895.

The sky blushes where

City and light meet, rushing

With the coming rise.

~

1,896.

Great, yellow horned moon

Crowns the City; we make stars

With electric lights.

~

1,897.

Life is similar

To scored glass – most breaks are true

But some snap askew.

Wild Iris Instagram

1,898.

Retreat into light;

The opposite of shadows,

We glow through the night.

~

1,899.

In fractured moonlight

We make a steady path toward

Warmth and light and home.

~

1,900.

On a sinking ship,

Adrift at sea, this dream and

Portents call at me.

1,251.

Bundled coats escape

The wind and reveal ruddy

Faces with big grins.

~

1,252.

Suitcases fancy

Traveling heights and thrill

For airports at night.

Sunset Cairn, Lake Vermilion

1,253.

Baltimore’s balmy

This December morn; civic

Art shines in the square.

~

1,254.

Twin boys off to play,

Making baby dreams throughout

These magical days.

~

1,255.

Impressions of form,

Broad strokes, mercurial bronze;

Rodin on pedestal.

~

1,256.

Blessing in lights; boys

Look fondly at grandfather

Through Chanukah prayer.

~

1,257.

From Baltimore to

New York we Bolt; the East Coast

Rolls across windows.

~

1,258.

Family and friends

Make a perfect hallelujah

For the holidays.

~

1,259.

Editing my own

Haiku, I laugh at these jokes

Of my own making.

~

1,260.

Somewhere in the Space

Between, I find I love you

More.  Come back to me.

Sunset Cairn, Lake Vermilion

1,261.

Baby boy kisses

On my cheek and nose make for

Bright, happy faces.

~

1,262.

Rakish harlequins

Laughing at ourselves; good friends,

Great food, grand visit.

~

1,263.

The Chanukah lights

Brighten long winter nights, shared

Stars of tradition.

~

1,264.

Christmas wishes and

Holiday dishes – the chill’s

Resplendent with joy.

~

1,265.

Shredded paper and

Piles of gifts – the best spending

Holidays with you.

~

1,266.

Today’s homecoming –

Train then bus then aeroplane,

Taxi at the end.

~

1,267.

From the plane, homes make

Constellations – Big Dippers

Light the desert floor.

~

1,268.

Waves of engine noise

Crash against the stoplight; I

Build my asanas.

Sunset, Lake Vermilion

1,269.

The light blooms downtown

As we dress for New Years Eve;

Fog cools the wild night.

~

1,270.

Fine dining with friends;

The New Year starts to sing from

The east to the west.

~

1,271.

Post holiday comes;

Laundry starts the day; a smile

And I’m still at play.

~

1,272.

Skyrim has taken

My life like an accretion

Disk pulls at the light.

~

1,273.

Lobsters came by post;

There’s only discarded shells,

Sweetness on my tongue.

~

1,274.

Full moon overhead,

Florence plays with the Machine;

Silvery commute.

~

1,275.

Ghostly pink, contrails

Line the dawn; oil from the street

Winks red reflections.
