Haiku My Heart

Under ice-blue skies,
the scrub-oak-shrouded mountains
keep time with the moon.

Lovers of small words and small poems usually gather each Friday at Recuerda Mi Corazon to share their haiku. Because Rebecca is in San Miguel de Allende today and next Friday, this will be our gathering place. Welcome!

in the shadows of the oak—

beyond the mountains
maybe fifty miles or more
oak the crow calls home

An old oak topples—
what better day than today
to open a book?

A wandering crow
settles among oak branches—
three caws to the wind.

Hidden on her tongue
the oak full moon is waiting
for its chance to bloom.

Under Mary’s tongue
the full oak moon is waiting
for its chance to bloom

Three Wisps

carcass of the oak
the dove seems to be calling
its name night and day
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
slash of a sickle
laying low the barley stalks
this harvest morning
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
frost on the ivy
a geek in his cubicle
turns to his touch screen

hawk in the bent oak
surveying his dominion—
fearsome chevalier
