American Idol.


autumn's sun and wind /
giving tall grass a new voice ||
soft, steady whispers...
~ Tiwago

front-runner of fall /
autumn's first flaming flicker ||
poisonous splendor
~ Tiwago

springtime's last promise /
beyond summer's green vigor ||
flowers of the fall

Some will say
We box [God] up
So that we can
Handle Him.

Others say that
If we turn the
Handle just right
He will pop up.

Some of us jump
Into empty boxes
And make a fort
To keep God out.

Haiku of Sounds.

shouts of crows and jays /
boney rattle of dried leaves ||
i hear fall... coming

Too Many Bosses.

I am stressed here...

Bosses at work.
Bosses at church.
Elected bosses.
Appointed bosses.
Self-anointed bosses.

I am not the prize -
I am the rope,
In tugs-of-war.
I am pulled apart,
And so I unravel.

I thirst for peace.
I yearn for hugs.
I need my babies.
I am a jungle-gym.
I am a trampoline.

...I am happy here.

Missing Friends.

 one by one,
suddenly gone,
headed south,

Dawn Haiku.

secret in plain sight /
only revealed by sunrise ||
creation's halo
