Saturday Night Jazz Haiku

“Let’s dance.” I asked her

Knowing full well the answer.

No harm in trying.


Surprise! She said, “Yes.”

We stumble to the dance floor

Got to Love playing.


Later she told me

Like a refugee come home

Right away, she knew!


Saturdays we go

To talk, hear jazz and slow dance

Till sleep brings us home.


* In case you’re wondering, that is Juliette Binoche dancing with Johnny Depp in image #3. And the song “Got to Love” is a title track from Laila Biali’s latest jazz album.  “Let’s Dance,” “Refugee,” and “We Go” are also song titles from the album found in the haikus.


Happy New Year! 2018

Blue shadow on white

Each step an ice adventure

On this moonlit eve

Howe & Granville 0116

Grey buildings, dark streets

Young and innocent on Howe

Rain about to fall

Emptiness Haiku

After the rain 0082 Tum

Empty lungs crave air

Arid soil soaks up rain

Emptiness needs life

Happy 2016
