haiku (stone #50)

woke up with a sore throat
dreading a cold during moving time
:slept on cold floor

haiku (stone #49)

all my muscles are tired
I lifted the mattress onto the car by myself
buoyed by unexpected springlike warmth

haiku (stone #48)

I stepped on the ice
it turned out to be a deep, shoe-soaking puddle
(this is and is not a metaphor)

This haiku is largely an inside joke. Sorry about that.

cold soba & the taste of avocado

There are many difficulties associated with meditation. Also, I guess this technically is a senryu rather than a haiku, the difference being that haiku have an element of nature and senryu are usually about human nature.

count the breaths … four
think of kissing you

This haiku is a commentary on a haiku by George Swede, anthologized in Cor Van Den Heuvel’s The Haiku Anthology. First, Swede’s haiku:

Summer night:
in my eyes starlight
hundreds of years old

million-year light:
cast toward snow-bound streets
before man’s dawn
