please never find me
smiling at the camera
explaining, pleading

NSEW mandolin haiku

eastern light of dawn
falls upon my mandolin
songs of dark promise

sunshine from the west
light warming my mandolin
songs of thanksgiving

northern exposure
my mandolin is glowing
a cool containment

southern exposure
russet colored mandolin
cerulean sky

idiots with guns
how to kill a smiling girl
taleban problem

siena haiku

jet trail in the sky
on the road to siena
slowly fades away

william blake mandolin haiku

awake in the night
tiger maple burning bright
scroll-ful symmetry

mandolin wear n' tear haiku

lustrous shiny back
glassy-smooth grip up the neck
soundboard chewed to bits

machete haiku

light in the forest
through dense swathes of undergrowth
bra'wee machete

(the "machete" is a small, 4-stringed instrument, very much like a ukulele.)
