4 New Haiku

Haiku
September drizzle
Sombre green olive trees weep
Dripping foliage


Haiku
Sighing plethora
Rain on a Sunday afternoon
Heavenly peace for some


Haiku
To be obsessed
With a gal who rejects you
October deluge

Haiku
Disconsolate leaves
On manicured lawn of opulence
Golden oaks lament

4 Seasonal Haiku

Haiku

Snows only purpose?
To make my garden look good
Four months a year


Haiku

Shadows and light
In an unseemly embrace
Foolish April Dance


Haiku

In the middy heat
Mules seeks shady carob trees
Man seeks the beach.

Haiku

Morning sadness
Rain trickles down the window
Grey October sky.

Wedding Haiku

thirteen crows
on a telephone wire
garden wedding

Published in Editor's Choice 'wedding / bride' Haiku Thread
Sketchbook,7: 3, May/June 2012

http: //poetrywriting.org/Sketchbook7-3MayJun2012-42/0_Contents_Sketchbook_Contents_7-3_MayJun_2012_42_Contents.htm


John Daleiden's Comment:

The line three fragment sets the wedding in a garden; the line one and two phrase provides the perspective of 'thirteen crows / on a telephone wire'. This descriptive phrase may be an intentional literary reference to Wallace Stevens' haiku like poem, 'Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird'. Or is it an accidental association of this reader? ...And why the number 'thirteen'...and why 'crows'? As a number 13 has the ambigious quality of being considered both lucky and unlucky considering the belief and interpretation rendered. Equally mystifying is the presence of 'crows' in the scene. 'Crows' have been used as images to convey a multitude of meanings, often conflicting. Perhaps that is the very point—just as 'thirteen' and 'crows' are enigmatic so too is a wedding enigmatic.

Bernard Gieske's Comment:

Chen-ou Liu reminds us that the future promised may not turn out as expected. This haiku, though, seems a bit stronger than just a reminder with13 crows present. No bride and groom would want to proceed under these circumstances, but love is a very strong influence, often overcoming all odds. This wedding takes place in a garden and, at first, I misread it as "garden weeding", a garden being invaded by weeds. Here the newlyweds are reminded that they cannot expect their marriage to be problem free. There will be weeds in the garden and these will need to be dealt with, hopefully, with that "tender touch" of the previous haiku.

A Dedication To You, The Reader

A Haibun

“It is your interest in my haiku that has enabled this slim volume to continue its journey into the promised land of old souls. The NeverEnding Story of imagination carries us further...”

The hunter's moon cracking in the attic window. And water stains on his unfinished manuscript, the one not for the faint of heart or for those who are loyal subjects of the totalitarian shasei regime.


“On the Road” leans
against “Essential Haiku”
his cold breath


Note: For those who are new immigrants or seasonal workers, the shasei regime (euphemistically) means the objective realist regime.




Author's Note: A Dedication To You, The Reader is a sequel to Winter Thoughts (for Mary Oliver) , whose opening haiku and prose paragraph are as follows:


rejection slip
a sunflower bending
to the wind

I often get editorial advice like this:

'You will notice that we veer away from authorial comment, abstract language, and the imposition of human qualities on the natural world. Instead, we choose haiku that achieve resonance through the juxtaposition of disparate images, credibly present in the same place at the same time.'
