In the choir loft
Sandwiches and coffee grabbed
Heav’n and nature sing

Anglican church so
High it was stratospheric
Christmas Eve incense

In spite of the worst
Christmas homily ever
Jesus Christ is born

Fresh out of propane,
Bubba taps landfill methane.
Steaks taste recycled.
Mary K Witte
From Redneck Haiku
Your wired sex face
is very unattractive.
No, let me call you.

You. Bore. Me.
Might feel different tomorrow.
Might not.

My dead mother
Frequents my mind
Wardrobe-changing season.

Huge cockroach scuttled
Across my naked foot once
It felt really nice

Old love letters
Read quickly
and thrown out
From The Haiku Year (1998) p69
Environmental my ass
full of false claims
I'll compost your ads
From The Haiku Year (1998) p100

4WD drivers
don't thank you for giving way
Blind spot in their heads

Tuileries Garden-Jardin Des Tuileries

A lonely chair sits
In the Paris winter chill
Ouch my cold butt cheeks

Sharon Lee
A glimpse of beauty,
As I pass him standing there.
Snapshot of the mind.

Public, happy smile.
Meet and greet and then it's done.
Adrenalin crash.


Post-event haiku twinset

By all accounts
it was a success yet I feel

"You said that last year"
Every year I feel the same
A familiar friend

Many Mormons with
Luggage; their smiles were like soft
Moth wings on my face

Alison Lester
low-hanging dark thoughts
rotting before they ripen
fruitless suffering

Whirling lights panic
The preemptive siren wails

It is nice to read
news that our spring rain also
visited your town

Come come! I call.
But the fireflies flash away
into the darkness

Mondays. Is there a
more cruel concept in the world?
Not enough coffee.
