Today’s prompt was “wrapped in a quilt, watching a meteor shower” which is a lot of concrete images. I tried to capture the warmth that comes from a moment like that. A haiku is supposed to reference nature; if there is no element of nature the poem is a senryu.
You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook. You can find other haiku poets on those sites as well. Search the hashtag #NaHaiWriMo to find us. Many of us post new poetry right to those sites as well as our blogs.

If you like haiku and want to learn more, then go to my What is Haiku? page. Also, stop by the Facebook page where most of us poets meet to get a prompt and share our work.


Tanka Tuesday| Small Things

  Small Things
rabbit hides in the
shadow of the sapling
he looks silly
then I remember I said
I’d be grateful for small things
  April 2016


So I said I’d share haiku, and this is a tanka. Oops. At least I am going to share every day this week. I managed to get my posts scheduled. I used to do Tanka Tuesdays because for a while I was churning them out. I also wrote and shared over a year’s worth of small stones poetry which is basically micropoetry.

There’s no rabbit in the picture if you’re looking! I didn’t get a picture of him, so this will have to do.

What’s on your menu today? I wrote this one rare morning when I got to have breakfast outside. The rabbits sneak across my yard all of the time but I have not taken any pictures of them. I may do that soon.


Day 13 of NaHaiWriMo

I am going shopping today. However, I will buy what I plan to eat and use, unlike the rabbits in my neighborhood.
If you are unsure of the rules/definition/form of haiku then please go to my What is Haiku? page. Feel free to direct any friends there who may be unsure of what is happening in the poetry community this month.
Also, tell them to check out the Facebook page where most of us poets meet to get a prompt and share our work. Today’s prompt was “zigzag”.

I Doodle, You ‘Ku 2014 – 03

I have found a poetry challenge by Aubrie Cox and have decided to post my poems today. This challenge runs throughout all of March- she puts up a doodle and you respond with a poem. Here is my response to day 3:

white rabbit
on white snow
deep winter

Yay Words!


This is a temp version of the doodle from my phone. I’ll scan when I get home. My apologies for the lateness! Things should be more regular from here on out.

The concept is simple: Here’s a doodle, now write a poem to accompany it.


Everyone seemed to like mobile version, so I’ll leave it up. Below is the scanned, unedited version.

If my son didn’t love the rabbits so much, I might kill them.

I have been trying SO hard to grow trees in my yard. I started out with 12 trees, and 3 bushes.

I’m down to 5 trees and 2 1/2 bushes. Mostly because of the heat, but the grasshoppers and the rabbits are eating the only green things left, which is my trees and bushes and flowers.

Do you have any pests in your yard that you are angry at?
