at bones journal–my single haiku and sequence

 

(I’m sorry, I can’t add color to the font anymore!)

single haiku

 

his stud pearl earring about a seahorse

damaged sky–
the clue
is in a shoe box 

Bones, July 2013

anatomy notes sequence

body matters
for mannequins
chopped off heads

knee plates bob
up and down
at cross purpose

checked
lying down…slouched
chins

delete
stumbling block
for flat feet

no. 10—
a gag on his fingers
as with silk

his old organ
gasps a night song…
crossed out

scored
a heart beat equals
flushed pee

spire…
whose dirty nail
bores a moon? 

green tongue
the consul’s deafness
to her pleas

body tag-
at blank hrs to island
of Langerhans

my haiku and coffeeku at cattails

I’m sorry for a long absence. I’ve been seriously writing, learning, and learning more haiku, its many forms and other Japanese short poetry forms. While these have been published about six months ago, hence, fairly recent, I’m now writing in one line, too. But meanwhile, these:

haiku

curled down
as if in fear…
her bare toes

white night—
a thickening stillness
in the cedar grove

into fog
the parallel lines
of parting

coffeeku

 

invidious the moth isn’t

onionson the twelfth bracket…yes
