Haiku 366-306 through –337

October 30, 2016 Haiku 366-306

one leaf at a time
maple turns orange
fall in full force

October 31, 2016 Haiku 366-307

all hallow’s eve
samhain’s veil thins
day of the dead

November 1, 2016 Haiku 366-308

a thirty-day race
any words count
NaNoWriMo again

November 2, 2016 Haiku 366-309

pick up programs, projector, Emi
a pedi and writing
full day

November 3, 2016 Haiku 366-310

words flow freely
demons rise as pages fill

November 4, 2016 Haiku 366-311

no decorating
no putting out or away
but Emi insists

November 5, 2016 Haiku 366-312

My short story, “Reset,” won the Virginia Writers Club Golden Nib Award.

some stories you love
and they surprise you
with a win

November 6, 2016 Haiku 366-313

clock hands move back
an extra hour of sleep
not enough

November 7, 2016 Haiku 366-314

amid building anticipation
fear arises
one day to go

November 8, 2016 Haiku 366-315

a day for making history
pride in saying
I’m with her

November 9, 2016 Haiku 366-316

democracy ends
with the wails of millions
one man whimpers

November 10, 2016 Haiku 366-317

Get over it; too soon
accept it; never
without a country

November 11, 2016 Haiku 366-318

eleventh hour
eleventh day
eleventh month

November 12, 2016 Haiku 366-319

only in writing
comes solace
wounds deepened

November 13, 2016 Haiku 366-320

more words came
fifty thousand of them
something to say

November 14, 2016 Haiku 366-321

refuge at home
no reminders
staving off reality

November 15, 2016 Haiku 366-322

a week changes nothing
no waking from
this nightmare

November 16, 2016 Haiku 366-323

unarmed for years
acts of hate
have me pondering arms

November 17, 2016 Haiku 366-324

nine days no news
my life
I’ll deny if I want to

November 18, 2016 Haiku 366-325

ten days no news
I miss Charlie Rose
no not even for him

November 19, 2016 Haiku 366-326

writing all day
with other writers
soul balm

November 20, 2016 Haiku 366-327

twelve days no news
the hole grows
deeper darker

November 21, 2016 Haiku 366-328

leaving the house to write
daylight dimmed
no hope in view

November 22, 2016 Haiku 366-329

fifty-three years ago
feels like now
double entendre

November 23, 2016 Haiku 366-330

fifteen days no news
bits and glimpses
make me glad no sad

November 24, 2016 Haiku 366-331

sixteen days no news
nothing to be thankful for
still bereft

November 25, 2016 Haiku 366-332

Facebook groups abound
who am I to dash
even false hope

November 26, 2016 Haiku 366-333

eighteen days no news
reinforced shell
no cracks

November 27, 2016 Haiku 366-334

no baseball NASCAR news
Hitler on History Channel
I’m prepping

November 28, 2016 Haiku 366-335

inside my house
alternate reality
I may never leave

November 29, 2016 Haiku 366-336

Thirty haiku to go!

each patron scrutinized
which one
will sing hate’s praises

November 30, 2016 Haiku 366-337

the end
book I was meant to write
a glimmer of joy
