Cat on the Table (and Other Haikus)

Table Outside

Gliding through the dust,

my fingers draw a smile

in the table dirt.

 

Morning Coffee

So much depends on

the small, yellow coffee mug

perched on the counter.

 

Boy with a Hose

The boy with the hose

spots me walking by his house,

smiles, then sprays me.

 

Packing Bags

My life would seem lame

were it not for the novel

peeking from the bag.

 

Cat on the Table

A leap to the chair

then one more to the table

just to say hello.

Dog Food Bowls (and Other Haikus)

Closer to Heaven

Sitting on the roof,

hands resting on the shingles;

legs hanging freely.

 

Telling Her

Typing the message

was like riding a new bike;

sending was crashing.

 

A Poem About You

A child at heart,

skipping through the sentences

like they were a stream.

 

Reminded in Nature

I picked the pink rose,

thinking that its smooth petals

smelled like your perfume.

 

Dog Food Bowls

I hear them bouncing

against the rigid cement

while the boys run by.

Dogs at the Door (and Other Haikus)

Toothpaste

Tastes like frozen air

as it flows between the teeth;

winter on my tongue.

 

Looking Outside

A flash of feathers

flies by the open window.

A glimpse of freedom.

 

Statue Envy

You smile through rain

and stay chipper through winter.

Oh, to be the same.
Temple of Time

Hidden in the mind

is my archaic doorway

and I lost the key.

 

Dogs at the Door

We started walking

and now when I’m by the door

they come stare at me.

Cat Asking for Food (and Other Haikus)

Mother and Child

The wooden figure

immortalizing their love

slants off to the left.

 

Project Planning

Tomorrow I’ll start

planting my tulip garden

if the weather holds.

 

Half-Finished Projects

Tools stacked to the side

and a doorway with no door

both gathering dust.

 

Rope Swing

Out over the lake,

suspended in the pine air

waiting for the fall.

 

Cat Asking for Food

You scratched the table,

crying for my attention

to fill up your bowl.

Dog in a Car (and Other Haikus)

The Squirrel

Your bushy tail

cannot hide the stack of nuts

spilling from your nook.

 

Sore

Like a rubber band

stretched tight between two fingers

just before snapping.

 

Two Pillows

They lie side by side

on the Victorian sheets

like two slabs of stone.

 

Twinkle

You looked to the sky,

starstruck by the midnight lights,

and I, by your eyes.

 

Dog in a Car

I hear you rushing

to look through every window

and see the redwoods.

Another Dog (and Other Haikus)

Greeting Strangers

What an expression

peaked out from behind her hat

when I said hello.

 

Collage

A clip from the news;

a smile from a model,

but eyes full of tears.

 

Abandoned Tennis Court

Kids crawl through the holes

of the half-torn tennis net

on faded green paint.

 

College

Stuck in the third row

of my second seminar

counting bio-sheep.

 

Another Dog

He’s in a leash too,

leading his person down town.

Maybe I’ll say hi.

Sitting Dogs (and Other Haikus)

Text Back

The three blue bubbles

bounce in the left hand corner

bursting with silence.

 

Fear of the Dark

There’s nobody there.

Nobody in the darkness

clawing at dead things.

 

Eyes Closed

Walking with eyes closed;

somewhere an ambulance sounds

a sharp reminder.

 

Looking at the Bar

The circular stains

of an overfilled glass cup

that sat for too long.

 

Sitting Dogs

Their tails kick dust

when they drag against the dirt,

waiting for dinner.

Dog on a Leash (and Other Haikus)

Legos

My fingers fumble

to click the blocks together.

Where’s the yellow brick?

 

The Move

Staring at the space

where a sculpture used to stand;

now just an imprint.

 

Soil

Between specks of dirt

I can hear the solemn songs

of forgotten souls.

 

Cloud Nine

I forgot I walked

all the way down this hallway

when I held your hand.

 

Dog on a Leash

You’ve strangled my hand

hoping that for a second

I’d let you escape.

Cat Walk (and Other Haikus)

In the Closet

Hiding in the dark

beneath the tear-stained dresses

that dried her red eyes.

 

Nudity

It was like fine art

watching him parade around

in his ankle socks.

 

Fortnite

It took two long weeks

to pry his wired fingers

from their controller.

 

Bathing

I sank to my nose

in the warm palm of water

that held me softly.

 

Cat Walk

She walks the thin line

along the back of the couch

in her black fur dress.

Cat in the Night (and Other Haikus)

Talk

We have gone so deep

I can feel the cool grip

of dreams at my feet.

 

A Happy Poem

It started with rain,

pooling as the water ran

down the grey sidewalk.

 

Iris

Gazing in your eyes

past the warm ebon guile

to a lonely heart.

 

Oh

Just one syllable

slipped between these solemn lips

followed by silence.

 

Cat in the Night

You crept on the bed

and curled beneath the folds

of my comforter.
