When creating a haiku, I try to capture just a moment in time because this I feel is the very essence of haiku.

My haiku attempts to pick out these moments and express them in the most lyrical way possible. So read, imagine, and most of all enjoy!

The men
and their football game
wives yell "pie"

In the rose garden
two heads
slowly peek out

winter wonderland
I shake the snow
from my boots



Tree climbing
on a summer day
a branch snaps
