Haiku 13

cherry blossoms i would love to put them in a poem this winter night

a scarecrow disappears in the field fast falling snow

winter day
even my buddha
starts frowning

my moleskine
a binge of words…
all on the margins

Haibun 31

“I do not have a biography and I am very happy about it.” Jean Anouilh

i have holes in my resume. they include years when i refused to wear a tie. even the wedding of a friend could not push me over that imaginary line.

dressed down
a bitter crow spits advice
through treetops
