Hidden Haiku

I often find pieces of scratch paper or miscellaneous pages in notebooks that are scattered with words, poems, and beginnings of stories–if not the whole story.  Here are some haikus I wrote back in 2013.

Lanesboro Arts held a haiku contest for their “Poetry Parking Lot.” As soon as I saw the posting I sat myself down and these are the words that tumbled out.

round and round I spun

my world unraveled before me

Up at dawn. New web.*

 ____________________________________________________________________________________________

Soft paws nuzzle my neck

shadows dancing on a dream

my garden’s filled with cats

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Touched by your soft look

I dared this time to look back

This man holds my heart

____________________________________________________________________________________________

drink your drink. Kick back.

Laissez les bons temps rouler

you are on your way

____________________________________________________________________________________________

The daffodils dance

Tamarack gently blooms

Dear Spring, you’ve now sprung

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Soft Savannah Sun

Stealth cat spies on baby birds

Unforetold Future

____________________________________________________________________________________________

*this haiku, the first one I penned in this group, was one of the winners of the contest
