Under the Bashō 2016Modern Haiku

 

time to ponder
in the library
the clock’s loud tick




airport pre-screening
the small gift of keeping
my shoes on




early morning
dental appointment
too many smiles





I step from the car
go from sixty to ten
spotting my parents





tree stump
squirrels leap
through empty space





last cup
from the coffee pot
the daily grind





wind gauge
roadrunner stands
atop the tile roof





leopard-skin panties
bunched at the trail head
two turtledoves
