Haiku of the Day

                   
In the afternoon
     metal ants with round black feet
             creep down the freeway.

Haiku of the Day

    
The afternoon breeze 
blew the dark gray clouds away;
bright warm sunlight.  
  

Tanka of the Day

   
Dark gray clouds greet me 
when I wake from my slumber, 
a bird starts to sing;
the valley is deep in shadows,
sunlight on a distant peak.

Haiku of the Day

     
I open my eyes
(a car rumbles down the street)
to gray morning light.

Haiku of the Day

     
Humid desert winds, 
thunderclouds hug the mountains.
(Distant thunderclaps)

Haiku of the Day

 
California days: 
The wind playing with the palms.
Bright clear pale-blue skies.

Tanka of the Day

    
"Hoo, hoo" chants the owl,
among the moon lit shadows
a field mouse dances.
    
On silent wings death swoops down;
Lux aeterna luceat eis.

Haiku of the Day

       
At four AM the 
dogs wakens and softly growls;
the bear has returned.

Haiku of the Day

   
Covered by gray smog
the brown-green mountains stand guard
over the valley.

Haiku of the Day

   
Tunes cascading out 
of the old dusty dashboard.
(Farmer in his truck)
   
   

Haiku of the Day

   
Tree filtered sunlight
streams through the open window;
morning has arrived.

Haiku of the Day

    
Shimmering heat waves
raising from the black asphalt
with sage on the air.
