01:18 pm - Rain
between catnaps
curtain of rain under
a dark sky

07:43 am - A Walk at the Temple Tanjo-ji (Okayama)
at the temple's entrance
are pines and bamboos

gingko tree
all silent and bare...
winter song

a bare tree...
winter doves spare
its crown

temple ground -
the pages of history
on old, bare trees

I quiver from the touch
of the wind

soft wind
kisses the temple's doorsteps...
my Amida

the temple's
majestic stance...

ahhh the pines...
the leaves prick me back
to my senses

the Buddha...
even the trees bow
in reverence

at the temple...
the bell remains mute
as I pray

05:13 am - Autumn Chill

autumn chill
there goes another jogger
passes me by

end of fasting
the snappy dog catches
all the bones

a fiery night
four legs are intertwined
behind the locked door

06:23 am - Hazy Moon
hazy moon
smoke fills my lungs
as I breathe

hazy moon
spiders lay still
on shabby webs

hazy moon
tall shadows of trees
line the path

hazy moon
not a flicker of light
not a sound

hazy moon
as if the clock
wants to stop

hazy moon
underneath the clouds

hazy moon
a blanket of darkness
hides some sobs

07:02 pm - 2 Haiku
foggy mountain
loneliness creeps silently
all of a sudden

funny feeling
I stammer and stutter
in her presence

09:09 pm - Haiku Mix

mid-summer sun
persistent heat creeps slowly
from open windows

a hearty meal
and asparagus soup

late night dinner
after the tomato chowder
crackers and butter

garlic and chive
a smell that tingles
the palate

07:58 am - Summer Days
the pond blurts:
"I thirst!"

April heat
near the lush garden
an empty bench

dusty road
the thin air envelops
my being

the shadow bends freely
upon dead branches

small town fiesta
a carabao receives
the whip

lazy moment
on a carabao's back
the sky looks calm

busy day
I dig dirt

07:16 pm - Holy Week Haiku

April morning
the moon is not ready
to sleep

Maundy Thursday
slippers remain dusty
at the doorstep

Good Friday
I ask the Lord

Black Saturday
silence in the streets
no more

Easter Sunday
cute bunny rabbits
or Jesus Christ?

09:02 pm - Summer Haiku 2009


scorching heat
golden narra flowers
dance in the air


noontime heat
a sudden downpour drowns
our silence


sweltering heat
even the birds scamper
for cool cover


summer sale
not a single shopper
leaves the mall


summer break
pedicab drivers ply
the near-empty streets


summer blooms
dainty sampaguitas
crowd the others


summer trip
the dusty, winding road leads
to swimmer's haven


overseas workers
our shack, empty
and abandoned


summer hideaway
in the Infinity Pool
I wallow


summer getaway
the white-sand beaches
of Panglao beckon


billows of clouds
cover the clear, blue sky
summer hiatus


clean-up day
machines scour through plastics
in dead estero
