my haiku:

 

the thirsty cat drinks

from a courtyard puddle

sees his reflection

 

temperature rises 

yowling cats by the bush

feral heatwave

 

sweat on my brow 

seeking relief

from a distant cloud

 

human mosaics

more diverse

than beach umbrellas

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

aromatherapy

at night

~

vaginal sunburst

hormones turn on the oven

a baker’s dozen

~

snowflakes 

can’t disguise

the city’s filth

~

trees and plants 

communicate

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

like tombstones
the rocks remember
each flower that died


sunlight hides sadness
the flowers and herbs
seek comfort from rocks


blue moods hide in clouds . . . departs
       whenever sorrow
              finds closure


resilience
the last flower blooms
beyond its time

mosquito lovefest
scratching my way             subway in motion
through summer                       wheels sing lullabies
                                                  passengers fall asleep

mosquito lovefest
scratching my way
through summer

behind Brooklyn Bridge
walls of gray mist hide skyline
delusional rain

like cat’s eyes
doors to inner peace
open and shut

subway in motion
        wheels sing lullabies
                passengers fall asleep
         sunrise
         hearing the birds
         not the train

Thank you Ayaz Daryl Nielsen for another cool edition of Haiku and more.

 

My haiku and short poems:

arms of trees

ever so graceful

even when still

bubbles

bounce off

the stone wall

at the same

speed to

nowhere

CATKU:

faucet waterfall

thinking of cats and haiku
