Superstition

Cold winter evening
A man lights a cigarette
To make the bus come.

This actually “works” surprisingly often…

The Unofficial Holiday

Super Bowl Sunday
Gathered around the TV
To watch commercials.

The Big Dig

Digging out his car
Neighbors criticize technique
Leaning on shovels.

New Year

Two, zero, one, one:
Penciled to practice the date
Before writing checks.

Christmas Eve, or, Why This Haiku Is Late

Last-minute shopping
Gives way to a final task:
Christmas Eve wrapping!

Apple Pie

Thanksgiving baking
The recipe book dusted
With last year’s flour.

Transience

Sycamore bark sheds
The lovers’ carved initials
Falling down to earth.
