Moonlight between barnboards.

Cornstalks rattle.

My parents are getting old.

Streetlamps in a snowstorm.

As if everything were perfect.

1 a.m. -

mouse in birdfeeder.

A bird chirps at 5 a.m. -

winter is getting old.

A fish flops on a dock

like my mopey heart.

I am lucky -

lilypads make me happy.

They stand well individually, and even better as a sequence. Good work, man.

Like a painting
This piece is like a painting. I am there; a part of the scene. Amazing work.

Reeds in moonlight
death stalks life
a black bass rolls

Wow Gomar
I can't tell you how glad I am I found this wonderful peace! I love it a lot. You are already on my favourite list - just wish I could put this on a favourite reading list. huni

Bob, if you get this
I know neither of us have been submitting lately, and I don't want us to get out of touch - I've repeatedly wanted to discuss haiku & other short work in general, and your work in particular, with you, but felt the Comments Section too restrictive for this. If you're into it, drop me an enote at, so we'll have each others' adresses.
