Categories: seasons,



they’re almost gone now
how brown, bare the branches look
some toys in the leaves

when rain turns to snow
how sad those two last roses
brave faces with tears

apples      bruised apples
scattered on the frosted green
and this twiggy frown

music in the wind
late october’s final song
dancing red and gold

talk of winter now
old dog by a crackling fire
shutters rattle      pings!

photo of dear dad
he loved that fulsome willow
fallen leaves      marker

- Haiku X 72 - Dog, Poop And Snow -

Behavior perfect
Deep cold snow how can she poop
My small dog Kissy

If my dog could talk
I try to understand her
She drown in the snow

Haiku on My Family

Second Chance May 2016
Sponsor: Eve Roper

five generations
   connected to my grandpa
      kindred forefather

parents united
    unto them came four children
      love to go around

mother faced cancer
   a dear lady, my angel
      adulthood so strong

adoring siblings
   warmhearted and devoted
     affections of blood

money not vital
   wealthy in rich loyalty
      assets of true faith

our childhood dog Bo
   my sweet Golden Retriever
      my canine best bud

united as one
   roots form a family tree
     belovedly linked

Brewed tea
Wife and myself
Nothing between us
He was metamorphosed 
Into a frog
When his wife had left him
I needed
A lonely woman
Thousand years back
She shivered
In yellow sun
Struck by her coyness
God travels
With three suitcases
One for me
I kissed
Her frostiness 
And my lips turned icebergs
The bed
Gets embarrassed
At our nakedness
Her hands
Stopped me
To pick evenings
We two rested
In a cave of Kundalini
Behind the waterfall
The alien woman 
Travelled six moons
To deliver her baby in a burial ground 
An eagle swoops
On a field –mouse
Tables of wedding
The woman kissed me
I felt her hollow ribs
As if in a spring dream
The woman’s hair
Struck by a gale
Made waterfalls
My wife locked
Me one fine evening
In my neighbour’s hole
The rats are away
When mice take in
My wife’s clammy face
The summer rain
In exasperation
Took wings to raid the moon
Lolo my wife
Her green sleek steps
Thundered an innocent fly
In the dead of night
God made two wives
One for me one for my neighbour
My neighbour’s wife
Delivered a child
When I was asleep
The woman said goodbye
And I took a fish for dinner
I mistook it for my wife
My wife is a canvas
Where I paint
My forebodings
A painter’s apprentice
In sheer foolishness
daubed in red my wife’s rear-view
A squirrel saw my wife
And in haste
Lost her guava 
I was caught in neighbour’s bedroom
By my wife last summer
I lost my glasses
A wolf entered the graveyard 
And annoyed my wife
Sarah my wife
Dizzy commuters
Sarah wed me
And in brief forgetfulness
Greeted my neighbour
A tiger ate Sarah my wife
It happened by accident
The tiger knows
Morning bell
Wake up call
I want to sleep
Pola my pet fly
Fouled things up
She ate my wife’s breakfast
My dog Pintu
I set him free on my wife’s posterior
Eons ago a butterfly
Gave birth to my wife
Now, a caterpillar 
A hard slap
Hurricane Sarah will win 
You have gathered enough winters 
Woman sighs
Leave one for me
The woman flapped her wings
To clouded mountaintops
Silky as white

The Fox, The Wolf, The Coyote


The Fox

with cat-like slit eyes
lurking near the hen house.
meow-less creature

Chihuahua-like ears
catch a sound in the bushes.
hens can rest easy

a small rat scurries
with that vixen in pursuit 
it’s fast-food tonight


song of the desert -
long howls declare “I am here”
mice and rabbits hide

barking dogs in threes 
unlucky mice collected.
live practice for cubs

yippy yippy yip
heard among those happy cubs
celebration time

The  Pack

the pack starts its hunt
mountains rise up before them
thirty miles to go

in dark night - dog fight
one alone - tail stands erect
yellow eyes back off

wolf faces grinning
twenty pounds of meat for each
like one hundred burgers

Dog Kisses

Messy dog kisses:
Most likely are full of germs,
But make me happy.

Poem Details | by KP Nunez |
Categories: imagery, natural disasters, nature,



midday darkness heavy
    rain pounds, winds howl---
           trees topple as huts crumble


blacked-out night
     eerie silence for miles---
          dog whimpers and hide


sun shines bright on
    full clotheslines for miles---
        sad smiles from grief-stricken faces

*To all those who prayed for my country, the Philippines, thank youThe typhoon changed course and only a small portion up north was affected It is unfortunate however, that 2 people died due to electrocution, an effect no doubt of the storm.

Desert Sun

desert sun…
sears thirsty still life 
of flesh and sagebrush 

gray clouds burst 
breaching dry nostrils…
soiled, wet, smelly dog

Some dog taught me this,
your head sinks and your butt floats.
It’s called cat paddling!

For “Primal Instinct” contest   And the dog says’ “Oops, My Bad!”

Categories: animal, assonance,



stays on fingertips
the softness as though rubbed off
a quiet presence

the expectation
in her simple meowing
and i understand
the dog is open
not so the domestic cat
so still and secret

in that pea green boat
the owl and the pussy cat
at sea with secrets

kitty cat has been
to london to see the queen
what did he there?

                                     a puppy dog plays
                              on a green grassy pond's shore
                                    mother dog's near by 

                                      puppy sees flying

                                     chases to catch it 

                                     many times it failed
                               mother dog was watching this

The Predator

                                                         a red-tailed hawk

                                            swoops down to snatch its prey --

                                                          a tiny dog barks.

                                            dog team glides

                                              snow ice smooth
                                       dogsled consumes white miles

Poet's Dozen - Life With Snickers

Life with Snickers
(four short poems in one)

our one-year-old dog
lapping up toilet water -
what a potty mouth

That dog is also into smut;
he likes to sniff poor kitty’s butt.

He hears my slightest movements in the kitchen.
His paws appear at the counter where I’m preparing food.

Later, Snickers comes to meIn his mouth he bears a rope.
He wants to play that silly game I dread.
He stares at me, big brown eyes filled with hope.
Tug of war I play with himWhen it’s time for bed,
The cat and I can’t rest till Snickers has laid down his head.

American Haikus


the moon falls west-ward
the tule fog saunters east
summer ends early

New Siblings

puppy petite gold
bouncing around black dog's space
I know you’re in love

Swimming in spring fog
wind plucked guitar string in time 
Tule music plays


fog braised Fillmore
ready for full moon to wane 
while waiting for Jack

Dreams while Sleeping #2

when I piss in dark
All my prayers are sombreros
night of a new moon

Wake up Calls

first chirp of the morn
different from dog barking
five better than four

Midnight Ride

some full moon wheeling
search werewolves in the quag
Robin Hood’s fire

Unnecessary Student Loans

lifestyle to uphold
says I to financial aid
just give me the loan

English DeptBuilding

walk paper footsteps 
through hallowed hollow hallways 
already relics

Jesi Naomi

tuba bongo blues
like a freight train serenade
echoes in the night

New York Fall

tinged purple and red
nothing to rhyme with orange 
rolling New York hills

Gutter Glitter

lock jaw by myself
keep me imprisoned for hours
mumbling into phone

Danny West
it's raining outside
but I'm frying potatoes  
the all-night kitchen

Closing Time

staring at my beer 
one blue bird in the rafters
too it's closing time

Good Witch

She has rings and bows 
She has glasses full of hours
Honey from the bee

Louie's Pets

Louie had a dog It didn't like his cat much Louie sold the cat Louie liked his dog The dog was always faithful They always played ball Louie had a horse It didn't like his dog much Louie sold the dog Louie rode all day He never missed his dog He never looked back He plucked a flower One fine day in the meadow His heart was strucken I can see your grin I can tell what you're thinking I can read your mind He misses his pets But Louie has no regrets Except for his cat

Poem Details | by daver austin |
Categories: seasons


a care

frozen is the moon
every star an icy tear
odd sort of beauty

frost nipped the pumpkin
charmed us all but never left
strange jack-o-lantern

hear their forlorn howl
misting muzzles raised on high
cruel winter’s heralds

sitting by the hearth
old dog asleep and dreaming
hot woodfire crackling

mantel clock    tick tock
two mice in breadbox eating
i without a care

log    long handled axe

yesterday’s news

four grown men

early coffee brewing

child crying
old dog lies    opens one eye
screeching bedlam

feathers    here    there

Happy Thanksgiving all.

Dog sits on floor,
Hairy dog sits on floor,
Cat sleeps on floor...

I like drinking cola,
It makes me go very hyper,
It is very funny...

Makes a granny very very sweet,
Thay always scare me...

Sat lonely on the carpet,
In the English room...
