Compare The Cold Sunrise And Be Grateful: Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

February 7, 2016

SoCal Palm tree sunset -- warm sea breeze at San Clemente BeachShe would send me photos/
of tall SoCal tropical trees/
silhouetted in the red sunset;/
dancing in the warm sea breeze.

As if to entice me/
to visit and to stay./
To warm my feet in the sand/
and watch the palm trees sway.

I returned the photo favor/
of a frigid, streaming sunrise:/
A frosted cottonwood silhouetted/
against cold blue mountain skies.

T’was not to tempt her, nor to say I was coldly sad,/
but to remind her to be grateful for the warm beauty she had.
Cold Sanpete County frosted cottonwood sunrise

Tropical Chocolate Dreaming: a Few Romantic ConTEXTing Haiku

April 6, 2010

I visited a friend, who served me chocolate from the Big Island. We drifted off to platonic sleep. I dreamed. These are versions of the same dream haiku. I don’t know what she dreamed of.

We ate choco-late./
Holding hands,we fell asleep,/
dreaming of palm trees.
————
We ate chocolate late./
I caressed her face, hair, hands;/
We dreamed of gold sands.

We ate chocolate late./I caressed her face and hands./We dreamt golden sands.
