Haiku Page

Welcome to my haiku page!
Haiku is a Japanese writing form of art.
Its rules have been adapted to western languages - to demand
a specific syllable count per line.

Here you'll find my Haiku.
My personal favourite is the 4 Part Haiku For All Seasons.
I try to use the symmetry of four haikus to outline the moods of the seasons in Milwaukee
as experienced by the people who live here.
It may be the first true Milwaukee Haiku

 


The Haikus


Teen Trouble
vampire teenager
out past curfew partying
got nasty sunburn

 

Socks
like mismatched socks
because they're the last ones left
they're the perfect pair

 

Nessie
deep, dark and murky
 what secrets lie within Loch Ness
are there dinosaurs?

 

Tea
tea forgot in pot
dark and sweet. No longer hot
may cause teeth to rot

 

Shark
Shark sits under boat
waiting for fisherman's lure
hungry for supper


Plumbing
Traitorous plumbing
gargles menacingly and
threatens to explode



Existence
You are ice on ice
Treacherously beautiful
so I fall for you

 

Mean Streets
pavement lined with gold -
oily sheen reflects the moon
where I sleep tonight

 

Parlour
Spider looms over
A reflection of the world
caught in a raindrop

 

Romance
Romance still survives
through a miserable cold
with love and hot soup

 

Yap
Hawk sits watching door
Neighbour lets out yappy dog
I support the hawk.


Mouse
the life of a mouse
intersected badly with
the life of a hawk

 

 

Name. Birth Date. Death date

Worn stone hides the truth of you

Your life lived so rich

 

 
I used to eat lunch
On a gravestone. This explains
My morbid humour

Graveyard Reflections
Four moods from one setting

Look close in the moss

I scraped our names together

Short lived. Like our love

 

 

Like eye of the storm

City commotion surrounds

You are quiet as grave

 

 

 

 


Salmon
tasting the salmon
made me want to swim back home
but it's too far upstream.


Spilled Milk
spilled milk never cries
but spilled whisky looks like tears
crying out 'Drink Me'!


Virtually Home
Across an ocean
He visits his old homeland
In the virtual world.


Mouse Trap
Mouse trap set, he waits.
Listening for the snapping sound.
Hoping - But dreading.

 

My Own Fault
Slippery when wet.
I ignored the warning signs.
Now Iím floor ward bound.

 

Night Flight
bloody twilight feasts
flight to find the next victim
mosquito vampire
 

Awake Alone
your voice wakes me up
gentler than my alarm clock
but you slumber still


Haggis
Delicious pudding;
Splendidly unrepentant,
Secretly lovely.


 

 

Romeo and Juliet

Young but wild with love
Played so many times. Always
Ends in tragedy
 

 

 

 

 

 

Milwaukee in Spring.

Ground erupts with new green life

Fleece replaces down.

Spring

 

Winter 

Milwaukee Winter.

Snowdrifts in yellow streetlights.

People hibernate.

 

Haiku For All Seasons

Summer

\Milwaukee Summer.

Tables appear on sidewalks.

Dancing in the streets

 

 

Fall

Milwaukee in Fall.

Leafy rustling underfoot

People blurred by fog.
