Haiku – Failed Haiku

 

family reunion
I add hot spices
to the mulled wine

 

 

foreign map
the taxi driver’s
prominent veins

 

 

heatwave
the uber driver says
my street is cool

 

 

Easter egg
I gaze into
a vacuum

Haiku and Senryu – Cattails

 

last night’s dream —
strands of broken web
in the wind

 
fuel price protest
we burn our placards
for warmth

 
psychology teacher screaming in red ink
