In Fog

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1288 – Abalone Shells – Universal Jane
“What a joy to create a new episode for our festive anniversary. Last year (2016) we lost one of the most famous and renown modern haiku poets. Jane Reichhold died at the end of July and around that time I created that special feature “Universal Jane”. That feature was all about Jane and her wonderful legacy. In one of those episodes I tried to inspire you through haiku in which we can find love, erotics, sensuality and sexuality. Jane created several haiku about those themes and she did that in a wonderful way, not hidden, but out in the open.”

a time of beaches
abalone shells and lovers
without memories

making love
the jack-o-lantern also
grins in the dark

shadows moving
on the bedroom wall
a pumpkin’s eyes

in and out
of the river’s mouth
a tongue of sea

first sunlight
caresses our bodies
we unfold

Here is my attempt:

in midst of a fog
unable to see anyone
making love on beach

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Have to wonder, is it a trick of the fog, or a treat to the senses? Like this a lot,
