Haiku Dreams

Hiding Toad

trying to find
my dreams and aspirations
black-winged damselfly



I think I left my muse in the woods when I went for a walk this spring. I wrote a couple of haiku, so I know she was nearby, but then I haven’t been able to write anything since. Maybe her wings got stuck in a tree branch or a rose bush. I hope she gets free soon. I have been blogging for 6 years and I still have a lot of poetry from last year to show you. Stay tuned by following me on your favorite social media platform.


Haiku Thorns

hawthorn tree,thorns on tree,tree branch,hawthrone tree budding out,

paper cuts at desk
or pricks from thorn bushes
in life you get cut



No matter where you are, where you work or live, you will face pain of some sort.


Thin Haiku

crawling to the edge
like a squirrel about to jump
trusting thin branches


This was written in response to a #haikuchallenge found on Twitter.

New Summer Old Goals

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?


Senryu with Icing on Top

I can’t taste homemade icing without thinking of my Aunt Beckie.

Gnawed Haiku

red cannas flowers,beetles,bugs,pest,

bold red cannas
blossoms bloom all week
despite the gnawing of beetles


Nice Senryu

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.


Summer Sunshine


his face when
we give him a new toy
summer sunshine



Paradoxical Poem

world war 1, world war I museum and memorial, sphinx,

WWI museum
man with a German accent
takes our tickets




Party Haiku

the bee navigates
through the many flowers
which party to attend



Remember to plant flowers that bees like to eat!


Day 24 NaHaiWriMo 2017

flower bud

the frost kills it

hope delayed

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.

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.
