haikus I wrote and shared over the years...

to haiku, describe / a story or setting -- then / flip and give meaning ‪#‎haiku‬ ‪#‎meta‬ 2013

words writhing, unformed / such impatient wasp babies / me, unlucky host ‪#‎haiku‬ 2013

It rests on my tongue / an egg carried without hands / treasured, devoured. #haiku 2012

trembling at the edge / footprints crumble over, slow / faith gasping in shock #haiku 2012

musts and compulsions / demand: but needs just open / their mouths to consume. #haiku 2012

I want you home now / no more ocean between us / just a breath, and sweat. #haiku 2012

I thought I was safe / yet dreams show terrors inside / hope this purges them #haiku 2012

I'm not cod liver oil. / don't consume me for your health, / but to sate desire. #haiku 2012

dashing, stumbling, / laughing, free -- this creature falls, / tangled in new roots ( #haiku ) 2010

breath comes shallow, quick / scared, thrilled, hurried, embraced; gasp! / can my lungs keep up? ( #haiku ) 2010

spending my magic / on healing myself from stress; / so little to spare. ( #haiku ) 2010

after four hours / my body claims wakefulness / why can't I have sleep? ( #haiku ) 2010

exhausted with nerves / I turn to my dreams for help. / kind clarity please! ( #haiku ) 2010

I'm going to miss / sleeping strewn with sunlight; but / my days will end bright! ( #haiku ) 2010

so many questions -- / why is my heart so damn loud? / every beat a bomb. ( #haiku ) 2010

your patterns snarl me / in knots; I'm kicking kittens / (accidentally) [ #haiku ] 2010

laughter and cuddles, / sweet words and star-shaped balloons! / I want more tonights. ( #haiku ) 2010

twenty-seven years! / seeing through a glass darkly, / relishing the quest ( #haiku ) 2010

easily wounded; / roughly brush by and I bleed. / but I heal quickly. ( #haiku ) 2010

breaking winter's grip / and stretching to zir limits, / the sun strokes my skin ( #haiku ) 2010

my pinwheel mind spins; / often I'm color-drunk, but / some days the wind hurts. ( #haiku ) 2010

I care deeply, yes; / but am not responsible / for your happiness. #haiku 2010

living spider silk / stretching, contracting between; / almost pulsating ( #haiku ) 2009

spiraling into / unexplored worlds, new freedom / recalling old dreams ( #haiku ) 2009

feeling creative / but my head is so heavy / stay muse, paint my dreams #haiku 2009

be subtle, be heard; / bold fierceness gets ignored... but / restraint has limits. #haiku 2009

replete with rhythm / concerns thumped into the earth / glowing; connected. #haiku 2009

open, close; fish mouth / is any sound coming out? / are your ears for me? #haiku 2009
