Bill Waters ~~ Haiku

Haiku + Tanka, Haibun, Rengay, Shahai, & More

PING!

By Zee Zahava (stanzas 1, 3, 5) and Bill Waters (stanzas 2, 4, 6)

4 a.m.
the house settles
with a solid thump

the sizzle and pop
of eggs frying

just before shutting
the computer — PING! —
incoming e-mail

laundry day . . .
the huffing breath
of the steam iron

tuning the new radio
nothing but static for the longest time

false dusk
and the tinkle of sleet . . .
dozing over a book
