Tuesdays Are For Haiku 2013

It seemed like a good idea at the time. A haiku, 5-7-5 format, once a week on Tuesdays, to capture a moment in that Tuesday. I did this most of 2011, I’ll try it in 2013.

January 2013

01/01/2013

Snowy ground, still air,

Warm cat purring on my lap,

The start of the year.

01/08/2013

Ragged, pink, orange

clouds through high office window.

Sunrise in winter.

01/15/2013

Dark, smoky, fresh ground,

Coffee, muffin, next to me,

Breakfast on the run.

01/22/2013

Snowflake on eyelash

Slushy streets, move gingerly

Warm inside, quiet.

01/29/2013

Concrete beams weeping,

Tears of condensation fall.

Strange Midwest weather.

February 2013

02/05/2013

Nineteen years ago,

First date nerves, candlelit meal,

Borrowed scarf, first kiss.

02/12/2013

Solitary day,

Keyboard, self, and task to do,

Music helps me work.

02/19/2013

Icy puddles as

Roadside weather trackers,

Ice storm is coming.

02/26/2013

Dirty melting snow

Grey skies and rain, but inside

Mug of fresh, hot tea.

March 2013

03/05/2013

Gasping, heart pounding,

Step after step after step.

Elevators out.

03/12/2013

Head full of concrete,

Eyes ache, thoughts move slowly,

Quarantined at work.

April

04/02/2013

Coding my way through

Writing a broken program

Deliberately!

04/09/2013

Stretch out aching limbs,

Drinking extra water, the

day after sparring.

04/23/2013

Leaf buds appearing

Green against the leaden sky,

Storm season in Spring.

May

05/21/2013

Clouds blend to clear grey,

Puddles, wet grass, branches down,

Storm has passed for now.
