Cold Water Haikus

Five poems kiss your bare feet.

    1. I have been reading a book on pastoral theology the past few weeks, and I have been keeping up with the Daily Office in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. Presumably, these have influenced my poetry of late. I tend to go through phases, but even when I am going through a particular phase I find myself now and then departing from it. For example, even as my haikus have been getting more overtly religious of late, I have written two “Afternoon Girl” poems and am envisioning many more. As the title suggests, the “Afternoon Girl” is about an affair a married man contemplates having with a younger woman. There is sexual drama, but there are also poetic considerations of a male midlife crisis, an older man and a younger woman questioning their self-worth, a dark and brooding obsessiveness, etc. You may want to check out the two “Afternoon Girl” poems listed on my “Poems” page, if you have not yet seen them. I intend to write more of these in upcoming weeks. I love working with religious ideas in poetry, but it is nice now and then to return to a subject matter as modern and humanistic as a potential discreet affair.
