Ideals/Failure/Sacrifice/Life: 4 Haikus (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #17)   Leave a comment

If I hold ideals,
Am I not obligated
To live them myself?

In failure, I grow
Into someone with the chance
To fail yet again

Life: a sacrifice
To the gods, or to our fate
Willing or afraid

My life is fleeting
The amount is just a crumb
But the taste is sweet

Laziness: A Haiku   Leave a comment

Laziness is when
You put out a dumb haiku
Instead of writing.

Half minute haiku:
When you need a poem done,
And need it done now.

Carousel (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #17)   Leave a comment

Carousel spinning,
Animals dance lazily,
Children’s joy echoes.

I miss you so much.
It feels like eternity
But only a day.
