peace…and quiet?


pack me light

stamped for camp

undress the stress

in quiet wilderness


where grass rustles

stream gurgles clear

beaver crew bustles

clouds thunder near


meadow lark sings

mosquitos start riot

forest tree rings

stones, alone, silent


Listen to the “sounds of silence” with Dwight tonight at dVerse Poets pub…


A rock solid Q

“Q” for quadrille at dVerse Poets and “Q” for queue as in a line up of rocks.


Rock & Roll

Rosetta Stone

Rock of Gibraltar


Ayers Rock

Easter Island

Rocky I & II

Blarney Stone

Plymouth Rock

The Sphinx

Rock-a-bye Baby

Rolling Stone

Hope Diamond

Rocky & Bullwinkle


“On Christ the solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.”

hope is eternal


quiet stones by pond

ornamental trees blossom

bird chirps inside bush

remember neighbor who’s gone

…resurrected to new life!


While on vacation (visiting a Japanese garden in Hermann Park, Houston), we learn of a neighbor, Loren Meyer’s, sudden passing…

once upon a beach

Carpe Diem’s prompt from Jane Reichhold’s “Dictionary of Haiku”:  beach


mesmerizing swell

turquoise waves break in white froth

caressing smooth stones

river stones

caressed by flowing water

pale moon shines

owl wings past fir tree shadows

stream gurgles soft lullaby.



holy week haiku


The stones will cry out,

“He is coming, He is here!”

Palm branches salute.


This king washes feet,

“Break my body, drink this cup.”

Heart of stone betrays.


He’s crowned, whipped, bleeding;

“My God, have you forsaken?”

Dies on stony hill.


Sunrise in garden;

“Tell me, Sir, where you laid him.”

Stone tomb cannot hold.
