Spinners

an innocent thought
effects follow like shadows
drought and flood alike

~

karma ripening
shaping on its potter’s wheel
goblins of the night

~

conceptual frames
stacked together so neatly
this game has no end

Anatman and Robin

the abode of self
is a conjurer’s magic
rabbit from a hat

~

little tornado
a twister of mental wind
mighty, roaring self

~

regard for others
so difficult for this self
clinging to itself

Interdependence

arctic telegram
cold feet under warm blankets
raindrop pings window

from tributaries
oceans receiving rivers
snow drift in sunlight

afternoon thermals
heavier than air on wing
the sky believing

sanderlings darting
exhausted wave collapses
on sleepless shoreline

the water’s language
a library of cloud forms
notes on sea napkins

interdependence
words in light of other words
this buoyed upon that

2017 #MeToo Haiku Revue

Harvey

    each conquest a brick
    now tied to his flabby neck
    long walk on short pier

Kevin

    as young as they were
    he felt they were old enough
    and we do mean felt

Louie

    the king of standup
    single handedly ruined
    all self pleasuring

Roy

    he read Lolita
    as a self-help dating guide
    Alabama rules
