A poetry journal of everyday clippings
Free Photo


"The astonished muse finds thousands at her side." *Laugh**Laugh*
R. W. Emerson

I made this poetry journal because I like to play with words and lines and I wanted to put somewhere some of my practice work (or first draft) in verse, written--within a very short time, probably daily on the spur of the moment, with the idea to work on the entries later--with or without the help of the astonished (should I say shocked?) muse. *Laugh**Laugh*


Some of the haiku I have mixed with senryu, not only because I am not a purist, but also because I like to do what I like to do given what I feel at the moment.

In cool wind,
painted arms twirl with joy
since the sun --like a conjurer's coin--
reappears, waltzing over fine dust and dry hay,
and as fall comes in bright-colored cloaks,
pinwheel's hypnotic hum
hails the change.

cuts a line across the sea
soured with dense, dark clouds

A Memory

bait-box smells of sea
my uncle's oars splash and dash
mackerels in pail

underneath the wharf
dumped from a lobsterman's traps
a heap of dead crabs

“And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky.”
Rumi




Your name’s my mantra
for love has velocity
in endless moments


Happy Valentine's Day!

Along the thin line of beach,
widening ripples.

Birthday (2/12/1972)

Chick out of the egg,
a new being once inched in.
My sweet handsome son

now flexes his fingers
and strides to his guitar
like a prize fighter.

Tumbled on its side,
bike’s wheel spins. Spokes, catching grass,
form an instant wreath.
