aerial stalker
hovers in constant altitude
threatening assault


little blackbird
hovers above my crown
threatening aerial deployment

white snowdrops
dotting the green field –
fifth day of summer

the red queen
perched atop green throne
looks out into summery world


newborn cardinal
from top of the pine tree
looks out into summery world

at the saloon
fallen tresses
draw mandalas on the floor


at the hair saloon
severed tresses
fall to the floor –
drawing mandala

spring birds in the field
bid farewell to spring –
drenched by summer rain

*Finally, another long week of old haiku. This sudden heatwaves has struck me hard but also has inspired a new series called HEATWAVE. Let us see how that turns out. 😉 


fainting flowers
quivering lightly
the days grow dark

haiku #55

in darkness
the lotus flowers bloom
shade of whiteness
silently radiates
dragged into open field

tanka #54

under lotus moon
a tired ant drags its burden
night birds in wonder


beneath the moon
a tired ant drags its burden
night birds watching

haiku #53

a black crow
seeks to parlay with
young sparrows

haiku #52

this afternoon
green field is frosted with snow –
white dandelions

in early spring
visible in dark skies
in lieu of snowflakes –
a flurry of white dandelions

it is raining
in this indecisive grey area –
early morning

in this green field
tossed away by school children
paper snowflakes

bursting open

city police officer
watching children
his hand resting on sidearm –
since the world has lost her way


dressed in white
playful children in the park
let them remember the sun

mistaken identity –
the discovery of a ribbon
is nothing more than a black snake
