Whirlku

1
six fortune seekers
drilled holes in eternity
so much chimney smoke

2
bottom of the well
the remnants of spent wishes
glint like winking coins

3
this unruly night
tosses limbs across windows
shifting dream’s deep pit

4
splits in consciousness
de ja vu like worry stones
polished sheets of sleep

5
dawn drinks mist’s sweetness
dissipating its wet cloak
cliffs begin to sing

6
flapping breast and wing
mourning dove whistles a beat
exhaling daybreak

7
grackles like habits
assemble in seed-strewn grass
breakfast at first light

8
puppy stretches breath
across porcelain mornings
padding through the dew

9
puppy teeth rip flesh
unintended injuries
little welts of love

  1. This is great Haiku and I needed to acknowledge you for penning these.

    So when you say:

    “…grackles like habits
    assemble in seed-strewn grass
    breakfast at first light.”

    are you really alluding to a life which id fully regulated and in unison with nature?

  2. What a delight these all were. I must confess my favorite was the “bottom of the well” as I am old enough to remember their use in my childhood, but thankfully not at our home!
