Haiku in the Night

I recently released a book of haiku titled Haiku in the Night. It's an eclectic mix of free-verse and traditional divided into four colors: green, red, gray and blue. I took inspiration from the Japanese legend Basho and his separation by season.  Also, I thought I would share a few of my favorites with my lovely readers.

We are lunar martyrs
Dying by our telescopes
Lost in constellations.

I moonwalked
once upon a time
without you.

When your kisses lie
Whispers and your touch deceive
I am left alone.

Get it on:
