Haiku time

Updated on December 16, 2011


And when I woke up

I saw pieces of you there

Like jigsaw puzzles

When my ship came in

The harbor was closed that day

They don't take rain checks

Letters from Brazil

Break my heart with a hammer

Shatter my glass house

Cover my old scars

Invisible bandages

They tell what I can't

Damien Rice sings

To me precious lullabies

My bow has broken

If I would have known

Just how my life would turn out

I would have armor

Here it comes, the blow

The one that takes you down and

Turns minutes to years

Put the gloves on your

Hands that prompt the bob and weave

You go down: Round One

And still there it was

The life that you sought to take

It was mine, not yours

Here it is, the drop

It falls, it bends, and it breaks

While I'm on the floor

You are in my life

Like a leaf on a tree of

Money that still grows

      My favorite:

      Cover my old scars

      Invisible bandages

      They tell what I can't

      Keep writing these precious Haikus.
