1 tanka/varnish

Ancestor’s judgements
Some analogue picnic of
Misinformation
Churning the precarious
Starlit varnished winter dream

Varnish

1 haiku/saintly

Mossy stone angel
Cemetery concierge
Folk culture mercy

Saintly

Prefix

Midway to extraordinary is
a misunderstood antidote
for nonsense.

Relocation, dislocation, circumnavigation are
subtitles for reuniting
disintegrating cooperation.

Disturb context.
You understand where I’m going?

Fly, darling, fly
where ever the prefixes
discharge.

Relocate

1 haiku/patina

Rusty calm
Dried suburban hush
Autumn patina

 

 

Patina

Week 3/Cat Haiku Challenge

Cat in a shoe box
Size eleven good enough
Sunny morning nap

Lake Side

The lake’s side has become neglect
and the untamed field yields to
seedy, frosty October.
A week ago
there was a harvest riot of milkweed,
goldenrod and thistle seed.
The marigolds look tired.
But here there is a grateful, cheery chickadee.
Good morning.

 

 

Gratitude

1 Haiku/Prefer

Chilly autumn breeze
Rolling errant paper cup
Prefers freedom’s lot

 

 

Prefer

2 Haiku/Surreal

Vigilant sentry
Stalwart suburban bijou
The neighbor’s porch light

 

Hazy autumn lake
Spirited morning mistress
Restraint disappears

Surreal

1 Haiku/Identity

Rye bread, sunny day
Strawberries and sandwiches
Old friends, sweet silence

 

Identity

Cat Haiku Challenge

White whiskered boogie
Hustle and jive for kibble
The house cat shuffle

A soft paw tap dance
Fat cat knows the cha cha cha
Tango with the dog
