100 Haiku Chapbook

June Reading

unnamed

guilt and pleasure pain and joy yes and no

suffering is the face of god

just stare at the pain and reflect

there is nothing worse

that can be imagined

call it a test or a path

the only way to understand

is thru experience

it’s a cage inside your body

to look at nothing

while seeing everything

give up everything deny it all

Recent Haiku

mother passed away

from this world a year ago

today by the sea

 

from the rocky shores

of western Ireland they fled-

my thin ancestors

 

the splendor of sight

our sun rises once again

in spite of darkness

 

the sunken treasure

of waking up to mom’s voice

singing while cleaning

 

Gram used to tell me

it’s better to sell your ass

than to sell your soul
