6 Haiku about a lot of different stuff


in a sauna daze

sweat, toxins dripping away

so I can be pure



wearing boxing gear

I feel less afraid, but still

don’t want to get hit



so enamored by

later, now loses appeal

till it’s in the past



time is a friend that

won’t leave without you until

you’re in a hurry



long fluffy white beard

the little girl wonders why

Santa is homeless



blues is a river

naked and too deep to cross

without getting soaked

    Epigrammatic, sad, whimsical, poignant…these ARE a mixed bag but so is Trail Mix! 😛
    And I love Trail Mix! I believe I’ll just think of these as Trail Mix on steroids! The third and fifth gems are for choice! Lovely, lovely, lovely!!

    (“looses” should be “loses” but who sweats the small stuff?!)

    I so relate to “now loses appeal till it’s in the past”; and how heartbreaking, “Santa is homeless”–oh my goodness.

      Yeah…there are so many homeless I’m almost numb to who they might be. But every so often I see someone that, for whatever reason, touches the nerve of sadness about the reality of people whose lives, real day to day lives, are being lived on the streets. Where did they come from and what got them to where they are?
