Insectoid Serendos sequence – weird laburnum

Insectoid Serendos sequence

Pliny’s Idea
the spells and charms
of bees in lust

don’t we all have
some rights?

Christmas moon
the sheen rolling off a football
close to enemy trenches

the sun crawls
to a stop

frying an egg
off the car hood…
forgetting pollen

Brief Encounter
it’s still illegal to kiss
other lifeforms

Martian townships
how do we start to make
new prejudices

a weaving sky
into synonyms

Alan [Summers] Haiku Journey


Alan Summers is an extraordinary haiku poet and teacher of the haiku and halibun forms. I return to his bright, imaginative and free-ranging voice again and again in his haiku book, “Does Fish-God Know?”  I’m holding out for a collected volume of his haiku. One can dream . . .  – Donna Fleischer
