dog-day paddling with jim kacian

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 5:08 pm

We never need an excuse to feature Jim Kacian, our very first

Honored Guest Poet, and the generous author of a haiku-how-to

primer that premiered at this website.  Jim’s going to be in my neck

of Upstate New York this weekend (probably kayaking and feasting

with John Stevenson and Yu Chang), so I thought I send a big hello

from the multiple personalities at f/k/a.

 

Jim might not have seen last night’s perigean moon, but he’s

a lunar aficionado from way back:

 

 





                            brightest moon up all night

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

coyote moon small

 

 

 

sundown —

one dog starts

them all

 

 

 

 






the melon splits

ahead of my knife —

midsummer heat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

for my birthday

another trip

around the sun

 

 

 

 

Jim Kacian — Upstate Dim Sum, guest poet, 2001/II 





 








writer’s block —

an ice cream binge

inspires brain freeze
