exquisite night for
a walk through the neighborhood
new summer old goals
I wrote this for #haikuchallenge on Twitter. I wrote it in Spring, but I am posting it on the first day of Summer. Do you have any old or new goals for the summer?
my childhood birthday parties

I can’t taste homemade icing without thinking of my Aunt Beckie.
everyone wants an
honest answer from us
as long as it’s nice
So this is not really haiku, and I almost erased it except that people on Twitter liked it so much. This may be senryu, but I think it’s a stretch. Read the definition for senryu on my What is Haiku? page and tell me what you think in the comments on this post.
the bee navigates
through the many flowers
which party to attend
Remember to plant flowers that bees like to eat!
the frost kills it
Today’s prompt was “in short” and we were supposed to write a minimal haiku. I can do sad well, so I did a short haiku about being sad. My hormones are messed up right now and the dreary days make me sad.

the only leaves in the tree
holding the baby
Just in case I get too busy today to post a haiku, I will post a haiku that I wrote in February 2015. But do check back for new haiku poem tonight. I wrote this while going to see my best friend’s baby.

I wanted to share some extra haiku and get you guys excited for National Haiku Writing Month. Are you going to share what you write every day this year? Where will you share it?
twisting around itself
the tender moonflower vine
held up by its own strength
National Haiku Writing Month is on its way! Will you participate this year?
in my flowerbed
I want some bleeding hearts
but no one listens to me
I could have sworn I already posted this haiku, but apparently not. I might start sharing Louis L’Amour’s poetry in March. He didn’t write a lot, but what he did write was great. Who wants to read some L’Amour? Leave me a comment below!
