Humans like raindrops
fall to this earth
making an greedy impact,
to quench their thirst.
Yet they just bleed away
into a forgotten puddle,
a still and silent lake.

a haiku

Postman delivers
snatch mail through letterbox.
Keep him on his toes.

some more haikus

Summer birds swarm here
like thirsty drinkers in pubs.
I.O.Us on tab.

Dragonfly hovers,
kingdom in full banquet.
Winter soon follows.

a haiku

Man who paints fences
has perfect karate skills,
says Mr Miyagi.

some haikus

Bracing stepladder
knows not where to direct sight.
His groin at eye height.

Subtitles run on
confuddled during live link.
This is modern news

a haiku

Loud cricket applause
rolls across park, like thunder.
Wish I had ticket.

some more haikus

Bumble bee collects.
Unlike motorists searching
for cheapest petrol.

Signpost directions
only ever point two ways.
Never a crossroads

Skateboard man too quick,
doesnt spot stone on pavement.
Gravity does work.

a haiku

My latest art work
isnt a watercolour.
Ruined by my tears

a haiku

Cheap value coffee
crumbles like soft oxo cube.
Thicken with a spoon.

too late, i know,

I was petrified of holding you
having someone so close,
everything I wanted to say
I held back, hid it away.
Everything I ever wanted,
my brightest star
the exposure to you
was too much.
We all fell down, burnt.
Nothing more than a kiss
with my lips near you
I knew I'd whisper
all my truths in your ear.
When you wern't looking
I reached out a hand to hold
like a game of grandmothers footsteps
everytime you looked at me
I froze, I could move no closer
as your gaze never left mine.

a haiku

Fumbling in the dark
trying to unclasp her bra.
Gah!! Thats my watch strap!

some haikus

Sat in swimming shorts
legs prised apart keep me cool.
Gentle through breeze.

Inspiration! Now
write it down quickly before
the ink in pen runs. . . .

Haiku syllables
seventeen tones in total.
So use them wisely.
