jornales

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

conversations…a tanka duet

1.

we do try
to strain storm dregs
untying
old selves on a wire mesh
in bus conversations

2.

leaf orange boy
leaning on his elbow
point by point
on Confucius with dad
knee-high in fall

sudden hail/distant thunder/overcast (my three haiku at Multiverses first issue)

“I have become more attached to these particular haiku than any others I have ever read, most likely due to the time I spent with each poem and the fact that I personally selected them as my favorites from the many submissions we received. Some are safe but well-crafted while others are daring yet unconventional. Regardless of their ‘place’ in the haiku form, they each stand on their own as haiku poems of merit, and, in my opinion, deserve to be read and appreciated. I hope you come to enjoy them as I have.”                                                                                          

—John Hawk, Haiku Editor


sudden hail
among my silk scarves
a silverfish

distant thunder
the flagstones
fading away

overcast
an orange scarf flails
on the clothesline
