Color the empty
Cavern swept aside, this, a
Modest proposal.

Today's Haiku for the haiku challenge- days 23 and 24

Hold my heart.
Eagle tends to the
Little one.

Little one,
Grace my hand with yours.
Winter's end.

Winter's end.
The mother presents.
Hold my heart.





Deer's blank expression
On top of this rock
A dream walks.


Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 - Day 24 – February 24th – Words: Dream Walks Thanks to Rachana Shakyawar of Humming Today because the phrase 'Dream Walks' was coined from her poem

Today's haiku

So I have learned, as I was turned down by one website, that my haiku goes against American practice. I also learned that some stick to the 5-7-5 count. I have heard there is more focus on 3-5-3 syllable count. I don't know, but Here we go:


Haiku hides.

Bitter wind bites hard

Across face.


Ant crawls fast.

Wide, the empty path.

Work still waits.

I apologize of I offend with this one. Came to mind when I looked at one of the meanings of dedication, self-sacrificing devotion.


The tulip springs forth
From the ground below; tears fall
As the mother dies.

Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 - Day 21 – February 21st – Theme: Dedication







Beautiful and soft,
Grace the floor so gently as
The wind brushes skin.

Give me a Quick Pick, please

Numbers.

Numbers.

NUMBERS!

Numbers surround

Me. I am seeing

Them all over

The place, like

That dude from

The movie, Pi.

Must be my

Lottery obsession

Taking over

My being.

That need,

That greed

For the green

Paper. What

A hassle, yet,

I go on and on.

Deader

Slice of life

Meat so fresh

So sweet

Answer now

If the pain

Is great


I dance gracefully

Once we shined

As the star

Carried sailors

Across time


Laughter

A bitter pill

Swallow down

Tube portion

Extracted so

I may drink

Of the trough


Power

Savage waste

Ingested hole

Out the other

Cycle ends

World sublime

Subconsciously yours

Racing on rails

Images flash

Before my mind

Kill it with kindness

Interpreting schemes

Reducing payments

Broken dreams

In the undertow

Trigger snaps

Fires with force

Extract the hidden

Links to the past

Today's haiku #1

Grumpy man walks to

The dining area to

Eat, his hunger leaves him.

Thinking up this poem

Beatles backing my flight

Across the plains of imagination

Clinging onto cranial explosions

So run down before lava strikes

Child with balloon

Getting that overtime

Riding with worker

Bee, buzzing in my

Ear the whole ride

Smell of ox-tail

Smoothed it out

And we float on

The path by the river

Destination known

So let's go

Today's haiku Trifecta ( this is what happens after reading Basho, Buson, and others)

The crowd does not like
My funny pictures, oh well
Time for some more now.


This man wanders in
The room where I sit and work,
I look and say bye.


This sky above me,
How the mystery remains.
Thanks for watching me.

Haiku for the haiku challenge- quote: This above all, to thine own self be true

The child wanders
In search of a bug, above
All, this is the truth

Today's haiku #2

The man walks slowly,

Pants may fall in the process.

A slave to fashion.

Bitter flesh strip (tanka)

Cold across my face

Bites harshly the tip of my

Nose, and I cover

With hands defensively as

The robin protects her young

Now, yeah now

Crazy cycle moves fast
As I sit watching two
Idiots make me laugh

No sound, except
Blasts beating my
Eardrums, bloody!

The zone mode
Is on, damn did
These three days
Go by too fast?
