July 2015 Haiku/Senryu



Thunderheads
The darkness of plums
at Foodtown

First Date-
Eating Baby Back Ribs
with a fork

Park bench-
The eye of the sparrow
watches over me

Half Moon-
The glistening curve
of her bite

Run over
by Rush Hour traffic-
The tree's shadow

Her eyes-
Packets of Raw Sugar
torn empty

Park bench-
The eye of the sparrow
watches over me

In each store window
the same
quizzical face

Green tea with honey
The way her eyes catch
the sunlight

Again and again
paddling 
the summer sun

Left knee
the Dining room window shade
that keeps catching

Croissant flakes
What little French 
I remember

August Sky
grayer above the Temple
Fiftieth birthday eve

Bone spur-
Why my Achilles
won't heal

Left knee
the Dining room window shade
that keeps catching

Lazy eye
That one kid who keeps trying
to peep your answers

August Sky
graying above the Temples
Fiftieth birthday eve

Green tea with honey
The way her eyes catch
the sunlight

In Starbucks
noticing that Ishmael
blocked me on Facebook

Post divorce
The softness of the pianist's hands
But Not for Me

Arnold Palmer
The gulf between the order
and the drink

Waiting Room
The motorcycle helmet
above the cane

Not the Pinta
Not the Santa Maria
The Nina she moans

Morning fog
The parking lot fills
with honks

Bid Whist
Before cutting the cards
Mo cuts her eyes 

Clamor of crows
on a telephone line
Black Twitter

July heat
Still attached to the church
a burning cross

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