2023 AWAKENINGS -ii

  1. gibbous moon–
    baby on her back
    sleeping
  2. clenching a fist
    the nursing baby
    raising a day moon
  3. the nursing baby
    opens its mouth…
    an abyss
  4. snowball
    the moment a baby
    curls up to sleep
  5. sleeping baby
    turns so quickly…
    crescent moon
  6. moon sliver–
    sleepy baby
    holds a curl
  7. avalanche
    the flow of milk
    from mum’s breast
  8. avalanche
    breast milk flows slowly
    from the bottle
  9. steady rain
    water rushes slowly
    directly from the faucet
  10. waterfall hot water from the faucet

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2022

To all Readers (new and familiar) I wish you and yours a Safe and Happy 2022 Christmas.

And now a few holiday Haiku for you and yours. 😉

winter drizzle–
shoppers go out to buy
anything

heavy drizzle–
to purchase batteries
with a short life

winter fog–
water in iron kettle
spouting

winter fog–
where the iron kettle
puffs smoke

howling winds
little squeaking sounds
of Christmas children


PUEBLO MICHIGAN PART II B

snowflakes
salt pours through
the saltshaker

May blizzard —
stored salt jars
are astir

whiteout
pouring the sugar
into a bowl

the pulsating rush
of poured salt
snowy river

starry night —
white and yellow crayons
are easy to break

avalanche
plops goes the saltshaker
off the table

saltshaker
accumulating at the bottom
full moon

snowflakes…
all the saltshakers
are empty
