Cosset Lilies

Fragile to the touch,
Bathing in rays open wide,
Closed at star lit eyes.

Glint on Nile

Walking aimlessly
Suddenly a star entered 
A poem happened 

What was the poem
A cascade of golden light
On her hair and neck

How lovely you look
Said golden neck,the light said,
You are lovelier

The bird in my vein 
Said to both of them, good morn
They smiled, glint on Nile

-Haiku Nursery-

((** Natures Nurse **))

Hot temperatures
someone call the spring doctor
cold fertilizer

((** Early Bird **))

Fresh morning light
sweet SAP falling on my plate
Lego my Eggo

((** Desert Rose **))

In the dead of night
One star sings me a sad song
cactus feels my pain

((** Looks that kill **))

What else can I say?
Intrigue me with silence
look into my eyes

((** Home Sweet Home **))

End of road
my final destination
Next stop Olympus!

((** Heaven or Hell **)) 

Leave all dirt behind
Welcome mat above sunrise
running for the door

Mooku: Haikus on the Moon: with Cliff Notes

1Lunar Perspective #1

month long day and night
also sees earth wax and wane
no season penchant

2Lunar Perspective #2

moon's sun mimics earth's
earth pirouettes on star stage
sun’s smile Cheshire Cat

3Lunar Perspective #3

moon turns once per month
lunar tides dictate strangeness
heat loss froze moon’s face

4Lunar Perspective #4

one quarter earth’s size
creation’s spring, born of fire,
runt of the litter

5Lunar Perspective #5

moon is problem child
with no tilt seasons languish
haiku redefined?

6Lunar Perspective #6

evolution’s fall -
dangerous precession tamed
by earth’s sibling’s mass

7Lunar Perspective #7

eggs have their season
star dust life defying odds -
sister of mercy

8Lunar Perspective #8

seasons change in sky
rain a distant memory
blue moon poet's blues

9Lunar Perspectives #9

boy/girl in earthlight
cratered love finds its season
waxing blue planet

Brian Johnston

Poet's Notes:
As I learn more about writing haiku and hear practitioners speak of snapshots of experience/nature and concrete images the more restricted I feelThis poem looks at haiku from an unusual perspectiveAlmost no one has any experience with really seeing things on the moon, but with science we can imagine concrete images and snapshots that are at least as real as any we see on earthThe paradox of this for future haiku writers is amazing I thinkOne is tempted to ask if any truly concrete images actually existIs the mind's eye as good as our own? Is what we see with our eyes any more real than what we imagine at times?

Is language even possible that is not emotional and could objectivity be a farce? An eskimo for example has 40 different words for "snow" it is saidHow could an eskimo's haiku that used this word ever be translated accurately without resorting to poetic devices such as simile, metaphor, rhyme and anthropomorphism?

Stay tuned for other developments or share your insights with the rest of us.

Cliff notes (for the curious):
I have written a poetic version of what it would be like to live on the moon, what you would see thereOf course no one lives there now so these poems need to use mentally reconstructed images of what life would be like if you did live thereSo the point of this poem is to ridicule the idea that haiku have to be concrete images or photographs of anythingTraditional haiku people are going to love this I'm sure! 

Stanza 1 basically tells you that if you were living on the moon, then one day there would be the equivalent of 30 earth days..you would have 15 earth days of light and 15 earth days of darknessAnd if you could see the earth where you are on the lunar surface you would see it going through phases just like how we see the moon go through phases here on earthHowever, unlike the earth the moon has no seasons at allThis is also a jab at traditional haiku rules that require a nature reference in every haiku and consider seasons like we have here on earth to be a part of natureWell seasons may be part of nature on earth but on the moon they are not part of nature at allCan you believe I say all of this in just 17 syllables? 

Stanza 2 contrasts the behavior of the sun as seen from the moon with how the earth behaves which is much differentBasically it takes 15 days from the time that the sun rises on the moon until the time that it setsBut the earth simply stands still in the same place in the sky all the time, i.e., for the whole number of earth days that it takes the sun to rise, set and rise againThe earth never rises and sets for a person that lives in one place on the moonBut in fact as the earth goes through its moon like phases, we do see the earth revolving once every 24 hours while occupying the same skyThe real weirdness though is that since the moon has no atmosphere, there is no extended sunrise or sunsetInstead the day begins and ends instantly like the Cheshire cat's smileSo this explains the 2nd haiku! Ha!

- Haiku X 23 - Christmas 2013 -


           Finally perfect
           high in the top the green tree
           The christmas star shines

           The lights are shining
           all the children should sleep now 
           Christmas  tomorrow

            No children crying
            a night with good sleep sweet dreams
            Gifts under the tree


                                The wish is old and yet so real.
                              A peaceful Christmas I wish for you !

** Sunset **
The afterglow flame 
Creeping under the cold creek 
Daylight, gone again

** Soap Dish **
Daytime TV blues
Tune in tomorrows soap box
Dramatic, dusk wind

** Evening Star **
Tired sound waves 
Waiting for eventfulness 
Hour of the beast

** Atmospheric **
Phenomenon Light
Under the zodiacal night 
Kisses and shivers 

** Twilight **
Locked in my slumber
Vampire face awaken 
Thirst like no other 
** Sundown **
Aurora fading 
What goes up, has to come down
crowfeet, black and white  

~~ Tequila Sunrise ~~
Break of day, snooze 
Cockcrow without a whisper 
Coyote Ugly

~~ DAWN ~~
Same Situation 
Mentally agonizing;
Sunny side egg twist

~~ New Moon ~~
beautiful sun rays 
Sun awaits for ebony 
beautiful moonbeam 

~~ Adjust the Setting ~~
Breathtaking sunrise
Beyond the horizon sky
Sherbert colored beach 

~~ Skipping Rocks ~~
Glitter dusk on lids
Birds sing me a lullaby 
Kids playing by lake

~~ Sunrise Industry ~~
Shining superstar 
Golden streets with no stop sign
Lunch time draws nearer

I See the Earth Move

watching a sunset
on the beach at the ocean
touching the skyline

one quarter, one half
bright, blazing red-orange clouds
our star slowly sinks

I am observing
mighty Mother Earth spinning
my mind blows gently...

nearly twelve o’clock
our tabby opens one eye
distant   “Oh  ho  ho!”

this one special night
the hen house door stands open
wily fox retreats

some little green men
from God knows where    see the light
       bow in silent prayer

meanest man on Earth
on his camel    hears the babe
vows eternal love

he trusted the Star
when the shepherd left his flock
wolves    by Star    transfixed

Dark and Mystical

Heavy the darkness
While the world is fast asleep
Danger is lurking

Wolf on rocky ledge
Silhouette against the moon
Howling to the sky

Midnight clock striking
Engorged bats in frenzied flight
Deep red blood dripping

Wailing wind runs wild
Scattered clouds in disarray
Dizzy moon blinking

Lonely star trembles
Over stagnant pool, despairs
On stark reflection

Gleaming stalking eyes
Beasts of prey are on the prowl
Shadows come to life

From depths of darkness
Haunting spirits breaking loose
Ready hangs the noose

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

Really Good Rap Song Horn Haiku

Really Good Rap Song Horn Haiku

There are scores and scores
Of stores that have gone away
Too much have to pay.

When small star twinkles
Will we see all the wrinkles
As each one mingles.

Can you mingle late
Because you did have to wait
And anticipate.

Might mingle later
And prefer percolator
Coffee creator.

When things will percale
We should stand in a circle
Pray for miracle.

This won't want to miss
Really good rap song it is
Can be hers or his.

Nine Lives Haiku

Nine Lives Haiku

Cat wakes in dawn air ,
Morning dew on every hair.
Birds singing in pair.

Eyes made of glass,
Watch the seasons turn and pass,
Behind tips of grass.

 Whiskers are twitching
And seem slightly bewitching.
They leave skin itching.

After a washing,
His tail can be seen swishing
as he sits fishing.

He hears every sound:
roaring butterflies’ wings pound
and rumble the ground.

A tiny pink nose ,
Stops to smell every red rose
Before they can close.

His paws leave no trace.
An attribute of his race
is to step with grace.

He slips through shadows
To the moon’s silver meadow,
Each star a window.

 Free of kids and wives,
 Defying gods with nine lives,
Cat naps while man strives!

-Tiffany Ragsdale 2009

Do Miracles Occur

He stood on such bandy legs, shaking,
I thought he would fallHis cigarette
Puffing like the grey white clouds above.

A lone heron flies high and jagged
Like the tips of the mountains
That brush this clouded sky, and surround the sea

Where our ship skims the shore with its
Light, a star rising from the blue black depths:
Can we wait until the sun sets?

Pieces once apart 
Our heart ruby butterflies
Interlocked puzzle 

Perfume my passion 
Your masculine moon rises
We conjuct as one

Pearl clouds curl and whirl
Around our crescent star love 
Night beholds our light

Candles of true love 
Shine in shimmering midnight
Waterfall comets

Haiku of The Seasons


                                          The fountain of spring
                                   earth sprayed with mother nature
                                              in colored petals.


                                          Summer jewel tones
                                        color and punctuate life
                                          poppys standing tall


                                        Leaves like a bouquet
                                        of splendiferous color
                                       a grand patchwork quilt


                                        Like star dust snow falls
                                       blanketing all with glitter
                                           a wonderland view.
