Central Coast Sketches

During a New Year’s California coast road trip, I scribbled some “free form” haiku in the central region of California’s Highway 1. Beat writer Jack Keruoac liked to call free form American haiku “pops.”  Here’s a toast to the new year!


Spanish moss
drips from pine boughs
Like icicles


With my nose,
drawing Budai
on window fog


Rocks on the hill
like scars
On an elephant seal’s neck


Wrinkled green hills —
A mini Ireland
in California


Morro Rock —
a hitchhiker’s thumb
In the sea


A Highway One
hitchhiker’s thumb —
Morro Rock
