Haiku ~ eight

rising 
above it all
milk moon

Broken Haiku ~ Three

Twilight blinks
upon the road
a lifeless deer:
pearl balled in mirrored eye.

Broken Haiku ~ Two

Oriental lily
stains the wings
of a white butterfly,
amber.

Broken Haiku ~ One

At dusk
the dim flicker
of a dying star.

Haiku ~ Six

Above the city
light pollution leaks amber 
into the pearl moon.

Haiku ~ Five

Atlantic waves slice
the sun in half, a semi-
circle melting.

Bonnie Broukit Venus: Poem

Bonnie, Broukit Venus
After, The Bonnie Broukit Bairn -
Hugh MacDiarmid

Above it all in the silence of 
space, Venus in a green 
silk goun, untouched by 
ills from breathy droplets, given
through whispers in social
distance—well known to
the stars—but, never for them a
thochtie sparing by human-kind
oblivious minds.

Beyond the gloaming
when nightfall’s a’blinking,
bonnie broukit Venus opens 
her eyes and cries for the mess 
below.

Haiku ~ Four

Petal filigrees
press stencil patterns on snow
echoing full bloom.

Haiku ~ Three

The whisper of dawn
dappled with rose-gold hues, seeps
into inky skies.

Haiku ~ Two

As I burn your soul
onto paper, a butterfly
lands on my pen.

Haiku One

Lingering sun glow
blows kisses to the sky
awakening the stars
