Sweet Basil by AuntDot

Haiku for Halloween

Ghoulish screams echo / Among the moonlit tombstones / Terror stalks this night
Halloween by AuntDot

Joy (Haiku)

Friendship and laughter / Songs of the heart bursting forth / A fountain of joy

Does a Lizard Have a Gizzard?

Does a lizard have a gizzard? / Does a goat have a throat? / Do bees take tea with their honey?

Chipmunks Scamper (Haiku)

Wet chipmunks scamper / Under pastel umbrellas / Of wisteria.

The Largest Moon There Ever Was

I drove straight into the moon one night, / The largest moon there ever was!
Summer Secrets - Haiku by AuntDot


They strain your memories through a gauze filter…

Summer Secrets – Haiku

Bullfrogs and crickets / Reveal their summer secrets / Through the window screens

Greyhound Dilemma

I couldn’t run fast enough / At the track today…

A Yellow Butterfly

I made a wish upon the wings / Of a yellow butterfly…

The Old Swimmin’ Hole (haiku)

“…keep out signs…”


There’s a small stone bath near the garden’s edge, / A safe flight’s distance to the boxwood hedge…


I cannot count the times I’ve tried / To write about my love…

Morning Dew

Rinsing the residue of yesterday…

The Not So Red Convertible

On a top-down journey to nowhere / His hair glints silver in the sun…

Woods of Autumn Gold — Haiku

Woods of autumn gold / To color the memory / Through long white winters

I Tried to Write Some Verse Today

I tried to write some verse today / In Emily’s tradition……

Rays — Haiku

The sun breaks the thread / Of tightly woven storm clouds / On a summer day

Old in a Flowered Chair

Silent, the old man slouches…..

Night Poems

Nocturnal rhymes come tumbling out…

Inchworm — Haiku

An inchworm stretches / To a longer measurement / On the dogwood leaf

The Hawk — Haiku

In the small stone bath / A hawk lies, splashing stillness / Throughout the garden.

A Bit of Night Music

At last the dark descends / And now a sonata forms….

A Flower Blushes — Haiku

Photographer’s prize / Framed by green leaves of summer / A flower blushes

Youth — Haiku

Forever young once / Ballet lessons, chicken pox / Green hula hoop days

First Dog, Heart Dog

An ocean of tears / Still the sadness lingers….


They were carried first on shiny metal wings, / Thrown by evil into unintended paths.

September Madness – In Remembrance of 9/11

The morning sang of hope, the sun burned bright, / No warning signs of danger in the air.
