for a moment of joy or moments no one pays for, i give myself a ‘jornal’. this makes me rich. try it.

The last of my haiku in DailyHaiku’s Cycle 14

February 23, 2013

palm reader’s eyelashes my fortune in a hat pin

wall portraits—

I begin my yoga count

from the top

turtle pond

a girl shares unshelled

first stanza . . .

the missing subject

is a snail


February 19, 2013


in a fishbowl . . .

stray moon


February 18, 2013

what if

beneath footfalls

an egg laid

a raindrop hangs on her gaze—

Black-eyed Susan

    • Wow, again, for ‘mile high’!!! What a boost, Rick! Me more, ‘awe-filled’…

      wave sparks
      our eyes flit from heron
      to day moon

      Mahalo, dear friend!

  2. My sentiments are somewhat like Rick’s! Truly it has been an exceptional four weeks and am so proud to have you as a friend, Alegria Imperial! I followed them closely and loved all of them, but if i were called upon to cast my vote, probably it would be: because/ it’s your turn/ autumn rain (just quoting from memory), snow fall/in a cup…, carapace…and summing up the stars! Well done and thanks for sharing your brilliant work!

    • Dear friend, Sanjukta, how heart-filling to read your words…way so late but all the more meaningful. If I could, in place of words, I’d rather thank you with a long tight hug!! But maybe in some moment by yourself, I’ll send such outburst through the wind…from a recent visit to Hawaii

      palm breeze
      we trace our heart lines
      on a half moon
