summer solstice
the insomniac
waits for dawn

fireflies join
the solstice party

almost sunset
the weekend dad
drags a sled up the hill

Happy Father's Day! Not too much cookin' here, but it was nice to be acknowledged on at least two occasions.
Weekend dad's a little sad for me; many of my son's friends are in a similar prediciment as you might have described.

Hi, Bandit. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a satisfying Father's Day and a well-spent Longest Day.

FYI, David,

A proposed bloggers initiative
is being discussed at;

in the comments of Wednesday's post
in support of Iranian protests.

Please delete this if it is intrusive, David.

was pleased to find this, i had no idea you were still doing this.

it'll be a good place to hide when i retire from the public aspect of the seventeen syllable or less rat race.

evoking the old days, finding the
diary inspired a haiku...

victory parade
a pair of pigeons flutter
into confetti

a seventeen syllable haiku at that!

well, one more...

first light
crows shatter the confines
of their color

and one for the road to a brave new world...

a goldfinch appears
in the midst of its song

Hi, Ed, It;s great meeting you here again at dagosan's place. If you scrolled down, you surely noticed that my posting is sporadic and few new haiku are being generated during my haikai fallow period.

Thanks for the new poems and feel free to hide or seek here often.
