Haiku time

Updated on December 16, 2011

haikus

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.
