Moon .... Winter




Haiku originate from Japan. They are small and subtle, precise and concentrated. Each Haiku is just three lines, grouped into 5, 7, and 5 syllables. Normally their themes have a pastoral hue.


The Senryu has the same structure a Haiku. But the subject matter is different. They tend to be about people and their foibles. Unlike the Haiku, the Senryu is allowed to be funny.

Fat Men




Slender moon whose spine

Reclines in dark September

As a dotage god.



Winter speaks of change

Scars and creases latent lain

To haunt the summer.






Fat Men

Fat Men grow ugly

On the sausage and the pie,

Steak and kidney grief.
