Some New Haiku…

Posted in Writing tagged at 12:03 am by adrienne

If I ever write a book of poetry – I think I shall call it “Stash Haiku.”

The inertia hits
A wave that pulls you under
Soft and unyielding.
—————————————-

To Patsy Ann – a canine ship greeter in Juneau
who, though deaf, always knew when a ship was coming in. A statue
of her now sits on the dock to forever greet the ships:

Immortalized soul
Whose strange, gentle gift brought joy
to all travelers.
——————————————–

Thoughts flow unbidden
Blinding, enshrouding, until
All warmth surrenders.
———————————————

Two-parter on – What it’s like to think you might be about to have a seizure:

Throat tightens, hand grips.
Threat of the simple partial
Slaps me in the face.

Panic stops my heart.
Cannot have anyone see,
Cannot be alone.
