10 July Haikus

south of Covington
place names like stage directions —
Crystal Falls, Spread Eagle

a wild turkey hen
with eleven little poults —
get off the damn road

snake, a long muscle,
a twitching in the tall grass,
I want to bite you!

late June thunderstorm
blowing like a hurricane
r  u  o  k  jo?

Jim Morrison is
a perfect anagram for
Mr. Mojo Risin’

Waldo Canyon Fire
45% contained
smoke beneath Pike’s Peak

Poonac is a dog
who appears too dumb to be
useful, or a boat

you are my flower
pale, verging on translucent,
blushing in the sun

deep blue sky above
red car for sale on green lawn
north to Michigan

fill me up, my God,
in the place I am empty,
joy overflowing
