Haiku – September

basho_horohoroto


I hoped to write one haiku a day but this was an extremely active, tense month. In October, I will throw in a few tanka for variation.


 

9-1-2018

The black pitch of dawn

unfolds a golden lustre.

So death receives light.

 

9-2-2018

The speakers voice booms.

The daughters eyes reveal all –

volume is not truth.

 

9-5-2018

Barred face, shining eyes,

a paw on my backdoor steps –

cheeky raccoon.

 

9-7-2018

To Do list undone.

Cross it out, start again.

Fall procrastination.

 

9-8-2018

A gecko sighting.

Transparent-skinned infant

Quick as lightning.

 

9-9-2018

Three kids with hands out –

Gimme a dollar, says one.

Walgreens, Sunday night.

 

9-14-2018

Raucus morning joy –

Carolina wren wakes

and song fills the air.

 

9-24-2018

Whitest white of night,

crowning star of blackest black.

Full moon at midnight
