I finished working my way through the book 102 Haiku Journal and am putting together a zine each month (September) with some of the poems (September) I have written inspired by the prompts I found in the book.

I have been making a zine of flower art based on the birth flower for each month this year. Here is the artwork for September and the zines for September.

2022 09 Haiku

1.
Risk of death daily
Crazy drivers and potholes
A treacherous route

2.
You will never find
The answers you are seeking
Inside a cookie

3.
House plant left behind
By the previous tenant
Now dead in the trash

4.
A pile of laundry
How we dressed in the 90s
So comfortable

5.
A caterpillar
Fuzzy orange and black stripes
Inches down the path

6.
All joy is tempered
With a feeling of regret
Existential dread
