Haiku for fun

Smog sirens and city streets
Malicious bickering sounds
Blue glass sky above

Bright blinking neon
screaming green and pink and blue
while grass grows unseen

Unattended weeds
attempt conformity but
fail miserably

Inhale and exhale
Inhale and exhale and in
hale and exhale and

Cat’s eyes half open meet
mine from atop the bookshelf
and carefully close

Frozen air bites deep
Heat beneath the blankets
I burrow deeper

mosquitoes buzz close
breathing the fragrant air of
whispering cedars


  1. I love these. Reminds me of... what? Murakami. Mmmmmm.

  2. I love Murakami, and I take that as a high compliment.
