May 2015 Haiku/Senryu

Memorial Day
Strewn about the beach 
Lorna Doones

Full moon
The half of the Oreo
with the Stuff

Spring breeze
I rearrange the flours
in the cupboard 

Garden harvest
More salt less pepper
in my beard

September moon
Ahead in the headlights 
Oh Dear

Cherry Coke
My students ignore
the blossoms

Cherry blossoms
She scrounges her purse
for lipstick

Dripping from
the water tower
Spring rain

Her fingers
on my bare shoulder
Piano music

The Rapture
I find in Revelations
a squashed ant

Milky Way
between the stars
Ahmad Jamal's fingers

Afternoon fog
light drizzle 
low door jamb

Baltimore twilight
The slow fall of a tear 
gas canister

Three AM
The homeless man finds
a round trip ticket

Stretched across
the back bench of the bus
Morning sunshine

Morning fog 
a mother waiting on
the feeble sun

On the Boardwalk
the spotless shoes of the man
in a wheelchair 

Morning fog
only one of us

Bouncing off
every riot shield
Waxing gibbous moon

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