with a blow torch
writing haiku
in the snow

—John Sandbach
        

About the author: I was born in San Fransisco in 1948. I have been a professional astrologer since 1966. I am also a massage therapist, and teach at a massage school in Kansas City, Missouri. I have had two books of haiku published, "Step Into Sky", published in a bilingual edition (Japanese/English) by Happa-no-kofu press in Tokyo, and "Wrinkled Sea", published by Hikoo Press in Kansas City, Missouri.

    editing a poem...
    snowflakes melt
    on the salted blacktop

    my garden
    first snow
    with rabbit tracks

    tiny mind proclaims
    in "witty" headline format:
    i refuse to understand

    multifarious ideas
    to one experience
    putting them down to haiku

    unclear statement
    green grass seen through thinning snow ...
    befuddles the mind
    -
    creating a wall
    tall pines in winter ...
    it still rains on both sides

    I liked your haiku very much.

    Unusual. How did you think that up?

    Or did you try it?

    I can picture the moment.

    Only a breath of wind
    and the haiku's lines
    stretch wing to weather

    echoing from the dark
    thunder in the distant --
    thoughts i can't turn loose
