From the sky,
Roads, blocks, and houses –
A city.



Thumb And All

Curled on top
Of a breaking wave –
Ocean’s hand.




A rainbow,
Tiny, in clouds.  And one
Of the trees.

* The haiku I write are lines of 3-5-3 syllables instead of 5-7-5.

In the land of never ending,
In the country far away,
There are loved ones who are waiting
For the end of night and day.

In the land of ever always,
Where the river never dries,
The night and day were never there,
Just everlasting skies.

In the land where all’s forever,
The night will never come.
So candles are as needed as
A hiker’s begging thumb.

In the land that is eternal,
Where the Son’s the only sun,
It’s our turn that they’re waiting,
Since theirs is now begun.

Their joy full, for ours they wait –
The end of night and day,
In the land of never ending,
In the country far away.
