This blog is not updated often enough. This blog often has typos in it because I post too quickly. If you follow it, you won't be bothered too often.

Western Haiku January - March

"Haiku was invented and developed over hundreds of years in Japan to be a complete poem in seventeen syllables and to pack in a whole vision of life in three short lines . . . I propose that the 'Western Haiku' simply say a lot in three short lines in any Western language." - Jack Kerouac

Snow covered trees
in the dark,
my footprints already fading

Stop striving, Michael
trust in the Lord.
Wind in the trees - peace

Waves on the pond
birds in the trees
-a school bus howling

Eighty degrees
leaves falling
- Spring

Lying in the park,
reading Wendell Berry
The geese croaking themselves hoarse
