4 Haikus

(remember a haiku consists of three lines with five syllables, seven, then five)

Earth Haiku

Husbandry is due
to bring our sacred earth through,
fix mistakes renew

Mothers haiku

Mothers nurture us
with a purpose plus they re-
furbish forever

Hermit haiku

Oh, look at this world
I’d rather knot my brow in
sage rage far away

Fresh nature haiku

The whispering pines
say have nice day, butter cup
to the blonde bombshell

I'm from the East Coast, have lived in SoCal and now Northern California for some years. I've been writing quite awhile, published in 1992 in a literary quarterly: "Suspicious Humanist," vol. 2, #2, (20 pages.) Best job: fm on air personality on a now defunct station, "Evening Eclectic" music show, and a weekly poetry reading show. I played jazz and free/improv I enjoyed. Read Wallace Stevens, John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, etc. and commented on the poems. I have read once at a local coffee house. Love the Bay Area, wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I am going to appear in an east coast anthology of best new poets of 2010 by the end of the year, published in Pennsylvania. I'm reading once a month at a brewpub in Marin with a group of fellow poets. We read to each other our work, and personal favorite poems of authors we enjoy. It is a pleasure to share with a community of fellow enthusiasts.
