Touching Each Tree

John J. Dunphy

A sample of the haiku and Senryu found in this collection:


gliding across

the full moon


we sink a pond lily

with our pennies


singing within

its covered cage

yard sale

everything her ex left behind

twenty-five cents each


about to be put down

offers his paw to the vet

Christmas Eve

fireplace crackling with

easy-assembly instructions

convenience store restroom

Norman Rockwell print next to

the condom machine

the alien’s language

lacking a word

for war

Walt Disney World

Mickey embraces a child

with no hair

Laughing To Myself

Tom Clausen’s award winning book is back in print.  Here are several selections from this book.

before sleep  laughing to myself  at myself    

sitting in the sun

not even trying

to figure anything out

the way

the light bulb rests

in the rest of the trash
