Haiku 885, 886, 887, 888

From the collection The Immmediate and No Sooner, 2021.

Haiku 885

twentieth teapot
the oceans of strong black tea
you do drink each day

Haiku 886

chalky quarter moon
scrawls out white shadowy clouds
on night’s clean blackboard

Haiku 887

after a bottle
before a bucket or tub –
when should I finish?

Haiku 888

the so-practiced spy
turned abrupt meddler unmasked
with that one misstep

  1. I especially love the chalkboard conceit. The first poem makes me feel better about my tea drinking habit as I definitely don’t make as many as twenty pots or even mugs of tea per day.

    • I am smiling as I read this. I imagine one of your people right now with a big pink teapot of tea with her tiny fingers grasped around a striped mug. (No idea why I had so much detail in this vision, I just did!)
