Thrilled to have these haikus/senryus chosen by Wandering Muse Press for their Everyday Haikus Anthology coming out this summer.

1
swiss snowflakes don’t fall
they alight on chosen sites
divine precision

2
day can’t unbutton
tucked in too tight into night 

sleep with one eye closed

3
it’s a bit like this —

stray thoughts wrap around my brain
squeeze out poetry

4
cows bow for thick licks
silver frosted field at dawn
grass popsicle treats

5
lounging on chaise longue
spring’s tender warmth envelops
growing going on

6
spring birds twerp off key
winter’s monotone silence
requires tuning

7
garden’s hung over
stupid tulips stayed open
all night rain drop shots

8
pitter patter quench
mud rows cup deep steeping wet
spring sips its field tea

9
forecast’s blunder slipped
mistook rain’s claim on the day
mist took advantage

10
forsythia star
light shooting through the bleakness
make a wish for spring

11
waves fold sea to shore —
shore to sea — smooth blue creases
liquid ironing

12
our liquid lips sipped
each other for that first kiss
we remain unquenched

13
wishes liquefied
she poured hope to dull edges
in the wineglasses

14
kitchen wreckage states
last night's sworn testament in
dinner party dregs
