More Collected Haiku

1

rose, harsh, more precious -
caught in drift, flung in the sand -
fragrance-hardened leaf.

sea poppies redux

never dug this poem -
poppies in the sea, surround,
among wet pebbles.

N a station of the Metro redux

reading image poems
on the edge. Clarifying -
storytelling - sounds.

#whattodowithhaiku.

might cut and paste them
to my blog - there to live -
prosperous and long.

2nd episode. Hero and anti-hero becoming. Pop dead.
1st attempt at American sentence.

HD whispered a haiku to Gertrude Stein:
people are people are people are people are people.

7

checking out the thread
that connects Stein pulp fiction
to HD image poems.

writing haiku is -
like practicing scales, like stretching
before the next race.

9

doing laundry, chores
on a Sunday morning beats
the mindless talk shows.

10

His left hand - an oar -
She holds a baby, smiling
In a modest way.

11

The wind fills the sail -
The water shimmers - motion
Across the blue sea.

Interpretation
Secretly she has her wants -
For him - only work.

13

artist's emotions -
Hurt - far short of masterpiece -
Victorious - Done.

Wish I had some weed -
Take me to a different plane -
Slowly puff away.
 
15

Disturbing city scenes
People asleep in doorways -
The land of plenty.

A lot is going on
with these three - the painter
offers many clues.

We don't discuss Toomer as an imagist in #ModPo. He was there.

Inbound ambulance
Siren screaming - guitar sounds
Just like B B King.

Mentor told me I'd
never get rich off poems that don't
rhyme. She was right.

Heavy gray covered
Capitol South - in Foggy
Bottom skies were blue.

Sunday Haiku (10/9/2016)

22

Militarism -
poisons us - threatens our peace -
slows our freedom march.

23

After all the dust
is settled, and the newness
worn off - what will be?
