playground rain
a white chalk heart
washes away

    nice, nice, nice!

    Valentine's day
    a chocolate heart melts
    in winter sunlight


    Valentine's night
    we watch a third episode
    of Sex And The City

    an orange butterfly

    winter playground
    flurry of booted feet
    small snow angels fly



    Truly enjoyed Carol's haiku...!

    Lovely, Carol!

    early thaw--
    a heart carved
    on the gatepost

    squeals in the park --
    sunny day
    too soon for spring

    a valentine soreheart
    she learns that the rejected boy
    still sends her roses

    weekend visit -
    feeble hands
    caress my face

    long slender string
    left on the empty playgound
    pulls memories of my old toy

    silent rain drops
    saturated with dust --
    explode upwards

    when i use the word moonpie it ain't
    dirty or nothing like that, it means
    the eating type of moonpie that's
    made a tad bit north of chattanooga
    near the old lee highway. your poem
    is real nice carol, here's my compliment
    to it.


    spring fever
    she & i
    share a moonpie

    if a girl shared a moonpie with you it was a sure
    sign that a kiss was next. just southern tradition

    overheard somewhere.

    "today is done
    this lesson learned
    night has come"

    --------------------

    funny thing, love that word "funny"; back to matters at hand, funny thing levon, i thought a cola(rc) would be next.

    mardi gras
    throwing of moonpie--
    southern cuisine

    stranger thought, "moonpie best served on fat tuesday; whoa!!! doesn't mardi gras mean fat tuesday & vice versa"
