How many haiku

have I composed while in bed

and lost by morning?

I’ve been a bad, bad haiku blogger in the past month. After February and my one-haiku-each-day pledge, it must seem to any Haiku By Two readers that my haiku muscle siezed up. But that’s not necessarily true. I’ve composed many haiku in the days since NaHaiWriMo ended. It’s just that I never got around to posting them online, and now, I fear, those never-recorded poems are hopelessly lost. Yet some things have been changing in my life recently. My husband and I are preparing to become parents. This will be our first child. In preparation, I’ve left my job. March, it seemed, was one big rush to “tie up loose ends.” And now I’ve got some time on my hands. I guess one could say I’m currently living in the calm before the storm. I’m hoping haiku can help me through this waiting game.

sleet snaps and hiccups

against the house all evening —

he deflects my barbs

Facebook baby pics

alone, at my desk, I cry —

outside, freezing rain

planning a party

because I’m turning 40  —

the roof drips at noon

the dogs sleep with us

special treat for them, not us

they snore, we sweat

listen to the wind

how it makes the siding pop

and the chimes warble

This feels momentous:

the date and the haiku match

in number — Awesome!

of a plow wakes me before

my alarm goes off
