Three Haiku Wednesday-Mushroom

found in my backyard

phallic offering from god

I have no interest

 

next to weeds it grew

like a circumcised missile

sent to destroy earth

 

hallucinate not

the sixties are here no more

free love gone as well

3 Haiku Wednesday-Desolation Street

© 2012  Michael Fiveson

 

You won’t hear children

not on desolation street

no place to play now

 

the old timers know

but are too tired to care

that their town has died

 

Just the bar still stands

weary souls and alcohol

how did this happen….

3 Haiku Wednesday-Last Stop

long since abandoned

forgotten on a lone track

now a rusting shell

 

birds fly in and out

where children once laughed and slept

fools take pictures now

 

some still hear it roar

late at night when others sleep

a ghost train haunted

 

3 Haiku Wednesday-Yard

laughter filled this yard

and then the years fell away

adults now, still loved

 

the still of country

sweet breezes and lemonade

life is slipping by

 

I have tasted joy

quiet mornings spent with you

that’s my religion
