Tanka for My Son

Watching you grow up
Grateful for every moment
Bound by love, not blood.
Baseball, Jedi, and Time Lords
I never want it to end.

Comfort (Haiku)

Comfortable, warm
Cotton, Wool, and body heat
Scented candles burn.

Take sapphires, rubies, diamonds bright;
Each stone aglitter with starlight,
And with these gems a harp then mould
With finest strings of purest gold.

A cherub then to pluck the strings, 21 more words

Dusk (Haiku)

Twilight stars arise
Lighting the midnight highway
There’s nothing to fear

Poetry

Supersize

Meet Mary and her partner Pat;
She’s obese and he’s quite fat,
But they are comfy with their curves
And they still eat enormous serves.

Poem

In the Night (Senryu)

Disguised by the night
Strange murmurs in the darkness
Alone with myself
