Falling summer rain—

Tiny circles on the pond

Teasing the goldfish.

—Judi H.



Baltimore, for strange

Charm City—nay—weird city

Beloved nonetheless.

To the girl I met

Last night: Can we go find light

Under clear star light?

My Bear is my dog

Hiking the trails in the woods

My best friend, my love.

Happy, Sour, Strong or light

You are always right!

Beekeeper am I

I do not like to get stung

It hurts like a bitch.

Late afternoon in

A bed of rumpled daisies

And forbidden musk…

Keep the spirit free

Open your heart to loving thoughts

Act and make it so.

Happy Hour is from 5 to 7

It’s a license to drink

I’m always at happy hour.

Eight-thirty sunset

Mosquitos buzzing in ear

Muggy, sticky night

A light curly breeze

Salty rain-soaked sundresses

Summer gone too soon

I like tasty beer

It should have lots of flavor

I hope it is cheap

Cat splays out on wooden floor

Moist, wet, sweat. Repeat.

Have no fear, the real

Haiku artists are here. We’re

Ready for our beer.

Wife because she wrote me this

I like summertime

Except when it’s too humid.

Then I wish for fall.

Memorable times,

Cocktails, beer and wine we need

Happy Hour indeed!

Oh, look at them clams

Ain’t they weird, some have a shell

And some have a beard.

Many shades of green & rippling water

Starry night, I touch the sky

It was nice, goodbye.

The beer is quite good

I enjoy barley and hops

My thirst is now quenched.

Cold cold hard as steel

Puppy’s fur soft as velvet

My two worlds collide.

The Nickel Taphouse

Has perfect syllable count

For my swell haiku.

Flashbacks of summers

Water gun tucked under arm

Bronzed skin glimmers wet

  • Cija J.


A hot afternoon

When many red roses bloom

Hope rain will come soon.
