seeking heaven
between clouds of smoke, parting –
palm trees and neon

in laughter’s fountain
a goddess, discovered –
desert caravan

from the jazz café –
Ellington and exotica  
on a summer night

honeysuckle dreams
with ancient roads in her eyes  –
what hill?

  1. Listening to the music while reading your splendid haiku is just so very pleasing and full of sensations. Remembering being in smoky lounges dragging on a cigarette while sipping rum and coke.


  2. I think you did an excellent job – really well done and it speaks and flows like sultry nights – exotic and hot – with ancient wisdom watching behind the scenes 🙂
