Haiku #383

a late snack
of an evening train

Haiku #382

a still night
the mouse trap rattles
then doesn't

Haiku #381

his illness
her beloved flower beds
gone to weeds

Haiku #380

a cat meets me
after my long day at work

Haiku #379

not good as the last one
a slice of pie
after a bad day

Haiku #378

shutting a book
a pause
before turning out the light

Haiku #377

not yet too cold
brown field
a buzzard soars

Haiku #376

full moon and rabbits
late night trip to the woodpile
the dog comes along

Haiku #375

October 21
the strangeness
of leaves still green

Haiku #374

autumn wind--
in the waving of the grass
my whole life

Haiku #373

we hurry home
to drink it warm
first jug of cider

Haiku #372

a day at the lake
all the long way home 
smell of wet dog

Haiku #371

lake's edge
a rotting fish
we carry the chairs further

Haiku #370

tense situation--
fingering lint
inside the pocket

Haiku #369

at the river
a ragged line of gulls

Haiku #368

there in the graveyard
autumn's first blush

Haiku #367

a light left on
pale moths flutter up
the outside pane

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Haiku #366

no spider
just a bit of milkweed fluff
in the web

Haiku #365

trash burning--
tall flames
in the weak October light

Haiku #364

taking a shortcut--
the sadness of an orchard
that bore no fruit

Sunday, October 03, 2010

Haiku #363

stirring against
a pink October sunset
dark leaves

Saturday, October 02, 2010

Haiku #362

warming myself
first wood fire of the season
cold October rain



About Me

My photo
Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting: The Three Ages of Man and Death

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
