(lifeguarding- #1)

Sunshine. Kids paddling.
Two docks bob by the shore.
Sound: water splashing.

(the end of the day)

Bowls placed in cupboards.
Late-night kitchen, dim light, still.
Woman sighs, softly.

(a study in digraphs)

Breath churns acrid smoke.  
The scent of chilies burning.
Charred wet eyes implode.

Blog update

Dear (dear dear) readers,

As of today (Friday, June 10), Lunch Break Haiku will, most likely, be updated during the weekdays only (this means 5 posts-- or 85 syllables-- per week, instead of the usual 7). For the next couple of weeks, the timing of these weekday posts may stretch the bounds of what could reasonably be called "the lunch hours," as I sort out a new lifestyle in a new environment. That said, I look forward to continuing the (fledgling) tradition of haiku writing on this blog, and I so very much appreciate everyone's readership and support.


With light,

L.V. Newc

(moving to Maine)

Cold city living.
Now rain, light. Now earth rising.
Mountains call me home.

(she pools sad petals)

She pools sad petals.
Kneels head bowed, white weeping draped.
Mountain of flowers.
