Dear Reader,

Another two months have rolled by and here are the recent haiku. All of them were written as comments on comments or on status notes or on photographs or on weblog posts or in responses to emails. If you are really curious as to what caused me to write one of these, send me a note and I'll let you know. Robert H. Stone

Haikuwritten by Robert Stone, May and June 2010
All have needs and wants,
necessities and desires,
relief and release.

- Sunday, 2 May 2010

Try not to get up
on the wrong side of a mule.
Watch out for pawing.

- Thursday, 6 May 2010

What you are thinking?
My extended family
needs me and my love.

- Friday, 14 May 2010

Years between birthdays
each happy and sad become
the album called life.

- Saturday, 29 May 2010

Each thing has its place.
Bad is merely not wanted.
Good is the desired.

- Thursday, 3 June 2010

Both are just changes.
Those scared of failure become
those scared of success.

- Saturday, 19 June 2010

Call for a haiku:
Truth in the act of acting,
potential becomes.

- Tuesday, 22 June 2010

Rough temporary
given full range may become
refined permanent.

- Sunday, 27 June 2010

-Robert Stone
