Haiku Journal 2017 jvg #35

Harnessing your Muse Sunday tinkering with color.

lush Spring blades of grass
soft needles from Redwood boughs
my granddaughter's eyes


#36

royal Iris bloom
penitent vestments of Lent
taste of Burgundy


#37
tang of citrus orbs
tonight sunset's grand glory
Donald Trump's toupee


#38
laughing summer skies
deep oceans and wide rivers
singing a sad song


#39
love's chosen flower,
vampire's favorite flavor
soft kissable lips

Places I've never been that I would love to see. Alaska, Zimbabwe is Shona for house of stone

deck rocks below me
blue shadowed iceberg looms
camera clicks

#44

Zambezi cascades
into smoke that thunders
house of stone gateway

three broken hand bones
and two broken foot bone
Beware of showers!

This stupid song keeps going through my head
"them bones, them bones, then dry bones
them bones, them bones, then dry bones
them bones, them bones, then dry bones
Now hear the word of the Lord"

2017 jvg

just realized I didn't complete my medical journey in haiku.  After 6 weeks of daily radiation I'm all done.  
#61
monster machine moans
and clanks as it moves over
my motionless frame

#62
naked on table
techs hide behind lead wall
nuked daily

#63
no more laser burns 
pink shrug worn for last time
graduation gown

2018  Spring Haiku

#1
too wet to mow,
Spring grass reaches my knees,
wild poppies too

#2.
rain gives permission
for pregnant buds to blossom,
the birthing of Spring

#3
push of tulip bulbs
quicken to bloom in late March,
earth's fertile prelude

#4
in dawn's stillness,
flutter of butterfly wings
is the only sound

#5
pond frogs go silent
with splash of fallen branch,
the trees chatter

#6
trees speak their troubles
in tones so low, the wind stops,
woodpecker marks time

#7
I stop to listen
to the voice of the West Wind,
it sings ocean songs

2018  Holy Thursday Tanka

#4

In an upper room,
twelve gather at His table.
He washes their feet
then breaks bread and shares a cup
and asks to be remembered.

One will be His rock
upon which He will build His church.
One will turn his back,
choose coin over faithfulness.
Our Lord betrayed by a kiss.
