Bear Creek Haiku, Issue #142, March 2018

Thank you Ayaz Daryl Nielsen, Tama, and Frosty for publishing these haiku:

Squinting eyes 

brownstones behind a window

optical book shelves


glacial sunshine

Coney Island draped in ice

fingers feel the chill


bomb cyclone 

hits Coney Island

snow cone boardwalk


Ice winds whistle 

cold air vs. radiator

snow curtains on window


Gingerbread cookies 

mimic the fresh snow

on trees and houses


Snow-covered branches 

match the buttercream frosting

on mini cupcakes


gray sky, white landscape

a grim world’s transformation

for the holidays


linden solstice


at night


vaginal sunburst

hormones turn on the oven

a baker’s dozen



can’t disguise

the city’s filth


trees and plants 


but we don’t listen


quixotic brainwaves

travel to an altered state

sleepless in New York


like the leaves on trees 

summer extends its visit

warm October


heatwave in Brooklyn

we celebrate the fall

in summer clothes
