Beijing Haiku

Beijing, what happened?
Your bicycles disappeared
It’s cold and gray now.

Action

You took a big risk
It didn’t work out, we’re sad
I learned much from you

A sign of age, or hard times?
It is what it is

The eyes grow heavy with age

I woke up alone

July, you’re here now.

The summer sun and dog days

The year quickly fades

Scratching in my head
Monkey all over my back
Sleep comes fitfully

30th birthday haiku

Thirtieth birthday
My friend was very happy
We celebrate her

Drinking

Chuffed conversation
Tinkling glasses, small quick smiles
A nudge and a wink

Insomnia haiku

Sleep, where have you gone?
A daydream is not the same
As blissful slumber

Curry haiku

Curry

Curry on my pants!
I spilled curry on my pants!
Curry. Pants. Oh no!

(Written on the HP Mini 1000 whose keyboard is now destroyed by greasy curry-covered fingers)
