February 2014 Haiku/Senryu

Union Station-
Asleep in each other's arms
on the steam grate

Northeast Direct-
The loudest thoughts
in the Quiet Car

Check Out time-
Even the geese head towards

Cafe Car-
More mustard in the mustache
than the mouth

Full moon-
the smokestack's eye

Typewriter Blues-
Only the empty clacks
Of boxcars

Penn Station-
An exquisite hand
on a column

30th St. Station-
A pretzel with mustard
and diesel smoke

Two Trains Running-
She puts her boyfriend on hold
for her husband

Desert stones-
The face of the small boy
Crossing them

Dunn mistrial-
What might be a shotgun
In the distance

Light flurries-
The salt clumps
in the shaker

Valentines Day-
Saving the last Kiss
for morning

February night-
A heart shaped crater
on the Moon

Two clouds-
Her arm in his

Snake Eyes-
The Pit Boss scans
The rail

Wind gust-
My Funnel Cake in
a Sea Gull's beak

And until next we meet, may all your potatoes be sweet (and dusted with cinnamon.)
