12/26/10 – winter haiku

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
cold seeps into the house
like an invasion of
silent slippery hornets

12/20/10 – solstice poem

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
on this last night of autumn
this first morn of winter
the moon will die
the moon will reborn
as the cold candle of the nights
as the only candle shivering light
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
A few years back I wrote a holiday tune, “Solstice Sleigh Ride” – you can listen here.

12/18/10 – poem

frost bracing the windshield?
no, just salt and dirt
cars and trucks rototilling the road

12/17/10 – winter poem

a buoy floats
in the black stripe
edged between
the gray sheets
of ice growing
from the banks

12/16/10 – winter haiku

winter cold
steals upon this hour
like a thief in the daylight

12/13/10 – haiku

the cold grips your bare hands
squeezes hello
like a drunk salesman

12/10/10 – haiku

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
around the streetlight
snow slow sweeps
up, down, no matter
