Afraid and Angry

I cry out to Jesus.
Consuming anger and fear
Follow me today.

Rainy, Cloudy Day

Rivulets of rain
Oil-slick swirls in mud puddles
Rainy, cloudy day

Devilish fists grab
And twist my stomach - painful!
Pass the Pepto, please.

Flickering Flame

A flickering flame
Dances . . . defying wind, rain . . .
Lighting my path home.

Another year older:
Voices sing "Happy Birthday!"
I'm thirty-seven.

Writer's Block

I have writer's block.
No haiku inspiration
Other than these words.

Single Mother

Anguished mother's cries . . .
"How can I do this alone?"
Tears stream down her face.

Filled with food, love, family,
And my gratitude.

My CAT Scan

Barium smoothie.
An iodine injection.
Life after cancer.

Stowaway Piglet

Stowaway piglet
On a delivery truck
Full of toilet paper.

Sneaky, sneaky keys:
Your clandestine hideaway
Eludes me today.

Just watching the clock.
Sunday night insomnia.
Monday morn creeps in.

Two sisters fighting.
Grown women screaming like girls.
Some things never change.

Moss-draped. Majestic.
You survey your kingdom, now
Covered in asphalt.

Invisible intruders
Beware his fury.

Tonight's Migraine

A dull, throbbing pain -
Like being stabbed in the eye
With a spoon: migraine.

Veteran's Day

A soldier leaves home.
A family's sacrifice.
Freedom's gain.  Thank you.

See a Penny

Shiny, copper coin.
See a penny, pick it up.
Big whoop, a penny.


Spinning in circles.
"Spin me, Aunt Stacy!" she cried.
Dizzying laughter.

Delicious Citrus

Sun-filled orange orb.
Pulp exploding with juices.
Delicious citrus.

Evil Undergarment

Gut-binding panties.
I look good, but I can't breathe.
Lipo in a box.

Such delicious words.
Structured lines of syllables.
Poetry morsel.

Loud cacophony:
Growling and barking resounds
Throughout the complex.

Lonely Cat

"Hello? Where are you?"
Each meow asks a question
Of the empty room.

Muffled words, whispers.
The congregation settles . . .
Ready for worship.

Soft lips speak hard words.
Beautiful face contorted
By rage and contempt.

My Cavity

Suddenly I'm numb:
A drill grinds away my tooth
Removing the rot.

I need to lose weight.
It's hard when you love to eat!
Damn you, fried chicken!
