sun shower-
the oily pavement
stained with rainbows

I have been writing poetry since high school but only started writing haiku over 3 years ago. Since then, I have been lucky enough to have haiku published in Modern Haiku, The Heron's Nest and Frogpond. It has been a perfect balance to my 9 to 5 profession as Shift Supervisor of Microbiology at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Chicago. Through my experiences of haiku I have found a greater appreciation for the subtle beauty that surrounds us... things that can easily go unnoticed because of the fast pace of modern living. As a haiku poet, I feel a certain "duty" to try and catalog as many of these moments as I possibly can. It has enriched my life beyond words.

    storm clouds rising
    on the horizon ...
    half a rainbow

    over the computer
    only his tinted
    blonde hair

    salty sea sprays
    in may ...
    frosty windows

    fall dust storm--
    through green palm tops
    seasonal white blooms
