In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.

NaHaiWriMo

National Haiku Writing Month (NaHaiWriMo) is going on right now. Short poems for a short month. Check out the NaHaiWriMo Facebook page for more information. I’ll be posting my haiku here as well as on Facebook. Here’s a catch up for the first 4 days.

February 1 – biting into a taco

bhut jolokia
my words still burn
on my tongue


February 2 – railroad ties

northeast corridor
stapled together
by creosote and iron


February 3 – Greek coffee

black and bitter
coffee grounds settle for hours
winter night


February 4 – cream cheese with chives

my bagel lands
cream cheese side down —
six more weeks of winter
