Blame Moonphish. First attempts at this medium. Lots of fun. Lovely medium. Probably blaspheme to call this that. Ah well.

First Haiku Attempts 

Heat suffocates bed
Covers tossed in search of breeze
Lovers separate

* * *

Spilling words freely
Thinking to reach another
Step on broken glass

* * *

Frosted leaves hanging
Iced in death’s cold exhaled breath
Winter’s herald come

* * *

Laughter warms in love
A passing shadow darkens
Cold cold rain falling

* * *

Reaching out in want
Spending all my pocket’s words
Left then stone broke

* * *

Peepers fill this night
High frequency signaling
Spring now is afoot

* * *

Hats crush down on head
Ears reject the push of bands
Hair flies up unkempt

* * *

Whirls of color skip
Shards blaze even in puddles
Nothing dulls the fall

* * *

An ant travels fast
To my foot and then over
It’s anatomy

* * *
