Changes on the way.
What will happen to me when
These things come to pass?

Too Many Meetings

Too many meetings
I may go insane this week
Blah blah blah blah blah

Pink and purple sky
Dipping into the ocean
Desiring a drink

Hidden Camera Show

Hidden camera show
You think you are so funny
But really you're not.

Monday, August 27, 2007


Grey clouds rolling in
Lightning flash and thunder crash
Get out the candles

White Trash Decor

Empty beer bottle
Once filled with golden elixir
Now white trash decor

I Love You, But . . .

I love you so much,
But you're getting on my nerves,
My sweet little niece.

Isolated in the Office

No one to lunch with . . .
Isolated and lonely . . .
I don't fit in here.

this was written about a relative who recently started a new job

Watching with Radar

Watching with radar,
Waiting for the bad drivers
Speeding in school zones.

My Dog

My dog's on Prozac.
He's grumpy. He growls, bites, howls.
But, I still love him.

On Call

Enslaved by freedom:
Always connected, on call.
My cell is my cell.

Struggle to Stifle

I try not to laugh . . .
Struggle to stifle giggles.
This meeting is hell.

Sunrise and Sea Gulls

Sunrise and sea gulls
Greet me as my feet pound the
Salt-crusted sidewalk.

Chemo Nurse

A nurse pierced my vein,
And spoke reassuringly
As chemo began.

Hurricane Season

Saffir-Simpson Scale.
The cone of uncertainty.
Hurricane season.

Poop Scoop

Standing in the grass . . .
After the dog does his thing,
I pick up the poop.

Blah blah blah

Blah blah blah blah blah
I am too tired to write my
Silly haiku now.

Snake's Stranglehold

A snake's stranglehold:
Fear chokes me . . . hisses at me . . .
Feasts on my panic.

Monday Evening

I'm a slug. So tired.
Monday stole my energy
And discarded me.

Perseid Meteor Shower

Meteors hurtle,
Streaking through velvet night skies:
Perseid showers.

Eerie arachnid
Rests on a gossamer web
Awaiting a meal.

Black & White World

A black and white world
On stormy days . . . rain washes
Away the colors.

Razors slash my brain.
I lie in a cold, dark room:
The floor keeps spinning.

Grouchy, Cranky Me

Grouchy, cranky me.
Stay up late, get up early . . .
Will I ever learn?

Tuesday, August 7, 2007


A deceptive kiss . . .
Lie-laced lips. No girlfriend, huh?
If she only knew!

Monday, August 6, 2007


I am so grouchy.
The Sandman was late last night.
Sleep-deprived Monday.

Magic of music:
Harmony and melody
Uniting voices.

Reflections on a Dead Squirrel

Little and lifeless . . .
Discarded and meaningless . . .
An abandoned corpse.

Movie theater

The movie theater:
A place where magic is shared
With friends and strangers.

I wrote this after rushing home from seeing Harry Potter. Yeah, I sorta just phoned this turd in. Sorry. I hope to have a better one tomorrow!

Don't Forget the Milk

"Don't forget the milk!"
She cried to him as he left:
The last words they shared.

Road Rivers, Parking Lot Ponds

Saturated earth:
Road rivers flowing into
A parking lot pond.
