Hello Spring

My big toes burst
like flesh blossom, tender pink,
sun tickled.

Dream lover trilogy

You were beautiful
but I can’t recall your face.
Who are you, hot boy?

Your eager embrace
quite took me, and by surprise
we shared a moment.

Skin smooth as cotton,
I sleep to meet you again.
Dream lover, come back!

Water Music

On a barge, the King
says: "Play it again, Handel!"
By and large, we do.

Spot Haiku 19

the light that startles
stripping off winter layers
alabaster skin

Cathy Dineen

Eyes clear and twinkling
notice strangers on a train
hairy legs weather

Sun strikes my cold skin
Melts the ice of indifference
And new desires begin

Doug Hamilton

morning walk to work
ipod, sun, still coolish breeze
good to be alive

Jason Rostant

days kicking nighttime,
open car windows spill rap and
sidewalks show some skin

Patrick McCormick

Sun melts mountains’ mantle.
From warm soil snow juice flows to
Dark bud’s white blossom.

Doug Hamilton

Newly disembarked,
the Spring air smells like honey.
There's no place like home

Chris Gill

winter withdrawal
harder to hide imperfections
when there's less to wear

To Kirk

Grouchy S.O.B
With that face you can't afford
the bad attitude.

Challenges remain-
Three four three five seven five
Senryu or haiku?

The HCMC Collective 4

Uncle Ho
Behind the General...
husband and lover

Power cut
World without a/c
Hell on earth

Special for you!
Sing a song of sales pitch
Same-same but different

You like Vietnam girl?
Ten dollar blow job, you want?
Twenty dollar boom boom

A place I've never been
Weave through Saigon on your bike
My arms beside you

Disabled artists
turn egg shells into a Klimt
Creative license

Cu Chi Tunnels
An underground labyrinth
Think inside the box

Cao Dai Temple
I spy with my divine eye
who I have become

Ho Chi Minh traffic
No need for green men and red lights
If you know, you flow

The War Museum
Lack of narrative compels
fresh storytelling

Thirty years later
Agent Orange courses through
the bloodstream
