Summer Haiku

Delicious taffy 

Corner of the worn boardwalk

Smooth chewy goodness. 

Fun summer pastime 

Crack of bat at plate and cheers 

Baseball up and out. 

Baked feet blistering

Bubbling shimmer on black top

Where are my flip flops?

For more haiku, free verse, limericks, samples of my funny bone, and both joyous and sad memories of family, see my collection of poetry, No Boundaries.

Spring Haiku

Black spots punctuate

Lady bug fluttering red

Teensy feet teek teek.

Bees bumble along 

Garden smorgasbord buffet 

Slurping sweet nectar.

Holiday Dinner

Chicken runs round the farm yard, 

            Wishes he was the duck.

Duck runs round the barn yard, 

            Wishes he was the pig. 

Pig runs round the pig sty,

            Wishes he was the horse.

Horse smiles, relaxes in stall.

            Christmas day, he’ll mourn them all.

I don’t want flowers.

Screen Shot 2019-06-18 at 1.35.15 PM

I don’t want flowers, or a card.

I want real people, real time.

I want you to come to my parking lot and toss a football or baseball,

To meet me at the park and walk, apart, but together.

So I can see you from afar, and take video,

So I can watch it again and again.

I want you to remember me,

Remember I’m lonely and scared.

I want you to know I distance,

because I care about you, myself, and others.

I want you to know I hope to see you again,

that I imagine…

I might never see you again.
