Haiku Series 1 by Joanne Olivieri







Summer rains
the urban pavement
a concrete ski slope




orange sunset
tequila sunrise
at last call




beach bonfire
his alcohol breath
fuels the flames





sunbathing
she burns toast
for breakfast




morning sun rises
across Eastern skies
an orange smoothie




desert Summer
sans humidity
her hot flash lingers





cumulus clouds
pattern the sky
cotton candy




moonlight stroll
a spider
webs his way through darkness




hot air balloons
his speech goes in one ear
and out the other





Summer night
crickets scatting jazz tunes
my ear wax gone




midsummers dream
fantasies
in high definition




sunrise minuet
he hits the snooze button
and sleeps in





high tide
low tide
the yin yang of it all




quietude envelops the trees
leaves speak foreign tongues
ancient manuscript




a diverse species
hugging limbs
sharing the wind’s breath





mingling leaves
standing free
a natural commune




union square
a frenzied chaos
cries without you




a nonsensical
delirium on the rocks
shaken not stirred, Cheers!





cherry blossoms
blanket barren branches
Spring snowflakes




sky, ocean and earth
meet beyond the horizon
daily reunion




the sand dollar
rests upon the shore
seaside sands of time





unfold my petals
tonguing plucked
a sensuous touch




behind fog
the sea plays hide n seek
morning escapades




the horizon debut
where sea meets land
a commingling





dreams planted
seeds of life
Spring resurrection




perfection yet seen
insignificant am I
my beauty astounds




you sailed away
riding an ocean of tears
my heart in dry dock





delicate petals
gently unfurl
a soul hidden




canvas of color
tulips and daffodils sing
the praises of Spring




freedom paints the skies
on wings of inspiration
a seagull in flight





mirrored reflection
engage your senses within
contemplative thoughts




fallen petals
paint the landscape
nature’s canvas




perchance love whispers
on the wind of Winter’s breath
melody at dawn





November breeze
a faint whisper
rustling leaves




night frolics
upon satin bed sheets
breakfast in bed




ageless diaries
unspoken words
the introvert speaks





Tainted Heart

fiery venom
pervades darkened arteries
love, a dying flame
