Haiku and Hokku




Winter breathes coldly

A rose on new-fallen snow

Beauty in nature


White carpet without

Inside, the dog sleeps soundly

Dreaming of Spring days


Rain upon the window

Soothing, sweetly singing soft

As I write about it




Family stay near

Life's storms draw close together

What calm drives apart


Special together

As I concentrate on work

She watches TV


Fearing the future

She wraps her arms around me

And holds me tightly




Alluring water-front

Holding magnificent crafts

Warships now at peace


Men of foul language

Cargo brought ashore today

The smell of the sea


Moonlight on the waves

Horns of vessels passing by

A lonely gull cries

Dream Quest (Haiku)

I sit top the hill 
The Spirits look down on me 
My lost soul ascends

3 Haiku




Dreams they are walking
Spawns more kills more these old streets
8th avenue blues


2 Library


We're closed for today
Bring another day to read
"Tomorrow", I said


3 Windows


Light's getting in through
Questioning eyes they peep out
"I'm old", says the house

in a pitch black room

I'm staring at the ceiling

searching for a reason

"Haiku, 6-20-14"

by Jeph Johnson


He said "yes" to "yes"
Dealt with the condemnation
Succumbed to no one

Silent now at night

Watching the stars shine so bright

In my lover's arms

I can't hear my voice

I have never heard myself 

I wish I could speak 


I walk into Jim's

I grab every fatal gun

Innocent lives lost


When this spring begins 

I will become something new

Terrifying man


A psychotic man

One who's been shot dead tonight 

Finally at peace 


Few have spoken truth

Even fewer words spoken 

To never trust man 


She walks in with poise

Her cigarettes sting the tongue

She must be a witch


She walks in; wide eyes 

Her stare is paralyzing

She will suck you dry


She walks in with poise 

Never feeling insecure 

She is a damn lie


Time moves in lapses

I still can't feel anything 

I must be dying 


I unmask tonight 

Tonight is special it appears 

Something in the air


I sense I'm damn drunk 

Something has me paranoid

I'm grinding my teeth 


Please forgive my acts

Unless I deserve cold death

I'll see you in hell


I can't stop humming

Confined in an old casket 

These age old splinters 


Breakfast must move you

Or else your whole day will fail

Utmost importance 


Day after day lives

Always ruining traffic 

The law states what's clear 


The law states what's clear

The law is all knowing god

God is a sad man 


These police attack

One way out is through sheer force

My life has been lost


My funeral kills

My funeral is the best 

It shits on yours god


I'm high on cigars

One would say I'm out of body 

I'm out of my mind 


New York streets breed rats 

We would walk the streets straight stoned 

Just staring at lights 


Vapor wave junkie

They can't stop me at this point

Slave to the vapor 


Vapor  in my lungs 

Vapor I can't see a thing

Vapor to the brain


Haiku guru man

Ever thinking in haikus 

Can't escape haikus 


Dinner time! Let's eat!

I smell pork! Smell the swine!

Wake up, I am swine!


I set trends! Try me!

Alpha fashion omega!

I surf the trend wave!



She doesn't always get off 

That's the risk she takes


She wants to have kids

So she attacks any dick

Now she has the clap


She is desperate 

Willing to fuck anyone

Now she has herpes


She is mad for dick

She sexually assaults 

Now she is locked up 


Rape is no humor 

Even women commit rape

What if she raped you?


Sexual healing

I am stoned out of my mind

Sexually heal


And As her head bobs

I think to myself how great

This must be true love 


Woke up had a beer

Woke up had margarita 

Woke up drunk as hell


I fear she loves me

She doesn't realize it

It's my cock she loves


Money! Blood! Sex! Booze!

America! Land of cum!

Stars and Stripes of lies!


Sometimes when I think 

I might need a prescription

I would overdose 


In the hospital

High as a kite on morphine

Got charges pending


With a belt wrapped tight

I can see my blood pulsing

In with the syringe


Maybe I'm tripping

These drugs are hitting heavy

Yeah I am trippin


Stone cold Steve Austin

Woke up had margarita

And another beer
