I dislike haiku
it leaves me quite unfulfilled
unlike other things.

I’m part Japanese
But I have to tell you this:
Haiku is dullsville.

When I was seven
I visited relatives
in Japan (by plane.)

haiku 3

The truth of it is
I prefer rhyming poems
with a clear message.

5 to 7 to 5
talk about a freakin’ DRAG
(…in Hokkaido mists)

haiku leaves

Leaves upon water
after harvest festival
make me want to sleep


Children flying kites:
Kyoto monastery yard;
Basho-San, I’m bored


Rain upon bamboo
circles upon the carp pool…
Hey—what’s on TV ?
