The Flood

We made these rivers
for cars. Houses on dry land
drown in our mistakes.

Alack and alas!
Spirits drop as waters rise
May the deluge end

September

A slow crescendo
of acorns, and leaves tickled
with red and orange.

Packing

My existence in
boxes: square, contained. Signs of
internal struggle.

Arrival

I am in a box,
but there's a view, and ladders
for climbing higher.

What to leave behind
Memories, like fading dreams
Or a legacy

I don't wish the rain
would go away. It just needs
to go somewhere else.

I've found a theme for Haiku
And though all of a sudden:
"Why don't I make one?"


"Please don't tap on the glass. Penguins can see and hear you alright. They just don't care."

Welcome back to the
grind, diving through revolving
doors like teeth through gears.

Part of the machine,
We go about our daily
lives, hamsters on wheels

I'm here. I wiggle
my toes, palms face up. Yoga,
except I'm asleep.

Existentially,
Are any of us really
Here at all? Perhaps...

...anybody there?

Forces crushing you...
Hope dangling precarious
For you to hang on

Hold tight to the good
Depression, that coward thief
Devil seeks to steal

Ben Jonson once said
Time is an old, bald cheater.
I think he was right

I hit a deer

Windshield wipers smear
blood like a red carpet. She
limps away, gasping.

Emojis are fun,
But use them responsibly,
Unlike the movie

Went to the ocean
So immeasurably vast
Where sea and sky meet

A day at the lake
Caught some fish for my dinner
Eating well tonight

Down to the river
To cleanse my immortal soul;
Wash the world away

Out across the pond,
A flock of birds taking wing
Wishing I could fly

I sat by the stream
And nature surrounded me,
My mind wandering

Can you see it, too?
The entire universe in
A drop of water

Sweat

Encased in gleaming
weight, embedded by tired straits.
Third floor workout room.

To err is human,
But we can learn from mistakes
And not repeat them

To forgive, divine
Why hold on to resentment?
Life is far too short

The voice in my head
tells me to go out and play;
but my friends are gone.

Annoyed, it tells me
that I'm hungry and need food,
but the fridge is bare.

It says I should walk
Out the door, into the yard,
But the door is locked.

The voice is not mine,
And it's not always happy,
But I must listen.

That is the downside
Of being the avatar
In an Xbox game.

How to get everyone in a large auditorium to turn and give you disapproving glances

Pause in the music.
Whispers slip off my tongue like
snakes, echo forever.

First day of Autumn?
Surely you must be joking
It's over ninety

Sixty-one. Maine knows
its firsts, but more summer days
will sleep-walk here soon.

Another hot one,
But the leaves are still changing
Trees don't understand

Wouldn't be so bad
If we could get a little
Rain to end this drought

Response to A Haiku a Day 2017-09-25 10:42:34


A cricket sings, distant lull —
Melancholic requiem
In a timeless fall.

Pressing snooze, but I'm
already in class, riding
on anticipation.

Of what? The weekend,
maybe. College is supposed
to give life purpose.

Does it? Only in
an academic sense. But
humans are social.

Slipping into a
vacation's looming promise.
Little work is done.

Rain falls with purpose
Upon the dry, thirsty earth;
A calming rhythm

Response to A Haiku a Day 2017-11-02 12:22:25


Wake up sober
Can barely reach for the alarm
I gave up on one more day
