My first attempt at self-publishing. A chapbook of haiku.

I became interested in the verse form associated with haiku a couple of years ago and decided to attempt a western form of the same type. It is, strictly speaking, not haiku. But there is no English word for a short verse with seventeen syllables. I like the brevity that at the same time speaks volumes. Excerpt
walk the boulevard
haunted, sad, and hungry eyes
reflect broken dreams


poker faced snowman
stands as silent sentinel
protecting nothing
