There was a hauntingly beautiful sunset last night on the southern California coastline.

I was inspired to haiku whilst standing on a slight rise above our lagoon and my phone captured this strangely intense halo effect.

My poetry chops are a little rusty…but writing a haiku is like creating a post on Twitter; that 140 character limit causes drastic slash and burn style editing and revision to convey only the essence of intention. No word salad here!

Haiku: Moon Owl

Every so often I need to dust off my mostly unused poetry brain cells (Creative Writing Minor) and I’m reminded of how much I loved writing haikus.

Midnight sky, stars float
Inky black trees, silhouette
Owl hoots announce: moon

Late afternoon sun
Perfuming a slight warm breeze
Lavender grows here

HellFire…Haiku For You

Scorching smoldering
Hot dry smoky swirly winds
SoCal inferno
