Haiku Alley

Dark alleys call me

cold mist gets inside my clothes ~

I sleep shivering.

Haiku VS Senryu

Impetus of spring
   Beget invigorate life --
       Fruition with hope.

Shrill winds rip, tear, cry
   Heated verse under the sheets,
The songs of love grow.

Random Thoughts *22* Double Haiku to Double Senryu

Natures fist, such bliss
climb the weeping willow tree!
so inspiring

Natures kiss, wet lips
clouds surround, I imagine.
Poetry firing.

We embrace, she twists
grooving to R&B tones.
Dancing, dry humping.

Her elegant grace,
amazing and entrancing.
Just look at her face...

2 Haiku and a Senryu

Oh Great Mystery
Let me not forget myself
within my own prayers


Warm sun hits my face
hyacinth fragrant breezes
peonies dancing


Dancing Peonies
pink and purple faces sway
winking gracefully

Contemporary Haiku

"Contemporary Haiku" by Catie Lindsey:

children play and scream
in a world at war ~
school bell rings

in a war-torn town
where a child screams for his mom. . . 
a school bell rings

(I've removed this revision for Catie from the contest and am using the tanka above it on my poetry page!)

A House Full of Cats

a house full of cats?
we learn to step carefully
we don’t have nine lives
our kitties are so trusting
lay down right in front of us

“pet me and feed me!”
(this is a silent command)
“and keep litter boxes clean
don’t disturb us while we sleep
always be kind to us pets”

feline loyalty?
“at times we might say that – yes
but don’t count on it”

feline royalty?
“who owns who is the question?
you know the answer”

10 Holy Haiku and Senryu Poems

Routing Evil:
Over plains ink prints
Tales of God routing evil.
Jesus finds and saves. 

Passion Sunday:
The passion of Christ.
Jesus was hanged on a cross.
Truly this was God.

Blind Man:
A blind man washes
Clay in the pool of Siloam.
Now he see's the light.

Thirsty Israelites:
Thirst in the desert.
Moses taps water from rock.
They now drink refreshed.

The Transfiguration:
Peter, James and John
Are taken up a mountain.
Jesus does transform.

The Light of Jesus:
We bless our candles.
Light has come into the world,
His name is Jesus.

Be Perfect:
Be holy for God.
Have love for your enemies
As the perfect Christ.

Free in Christ:
Jesus came to free
Us from the power of sin,
Death and selfishness.

The Salt of the Earth:
Having mercy and
Pursued for God’s righteousness. 
You are now earth's salt.

The Walls of Jericho:
Walking by the walls.
On the seventh day it fell
With trumpets and shouts.

10 Haiku and Senryu Poems Vol 3

The Holy Spirit 
Shows forgiveness to us now.
Communion with God.

Fear in our bodies.
Fear in our minds and our hearts.
Jesus breaks through it.

Proclaim God's mercy.
He breathes the Holy Spirit.
Receive the spirit.

As the risen Lord,
He brings us peace as first fruits.
Suddenly He's here.

A mad buffalo,
I see it in the pages
Peppered with arrows.

A buffalo hunt.
A rain dance does start the clouds.
It bleeds and it pours.

A playwright does write.
Lightning destroys the music.
New songs are written.

Thunder does collide.
It starts to rain down chaos.
Lightning does now strike.

Rays of evil seen.
Darkness points to me and blooms.
I repent and win.

He escapes me now.
Lucifer hides and does run.
God will slay our foe.

Haiku, Senryu and Tanka

ocean sounds
I pass a conch
from my ear to hers
monsoon dusk
the flood carrying
my shattered dreams

long rain
the homelessness
reopens the school

holding tight
to the hand of my child--
on the iPad
my mother talks and talks
of returning roles

haiku for Bob

Note: I was asked recently whether I felt that a haiku/senryu could say as much 
as a western free verse poem could......yes....but differently.

at the end
of the rope......
a bag full of memories
