a haiku

Room next door rattles
gurgling radiator?
One more bedpost notch.

afternoon haikus

Misty park hidden
deep puddling stud mark pools.
Damp spring afternoon.

Magpies circling
loud construction site contrast.
Exhaust fumes pollute.

empty sky haiku

Hot sugar white sun
punctuated pencil dots.
Silhouetted birds.

commuting haiku

Commuters shuttle
worn paths between A to B.
Much to still explore.

waking a baby haiku

Baby in push chair
gives mother quizzical frown.
Pushed over cobbles.


Low gear cyclist
all that hard effort wasted.
Small distance covered.

Tides retreat empty
return with bountiful goods.
Trading empire.

some haikus

Birds fed soggy bread
these brief friendship connections.
Lunchtime well spent

Flag taps against pole
like impatient finger tips.
Welcome to my land.

a haiku

Silent boat floats by
wake carries whispered secrets.
Unknown plotted course.


Modern scars intrudes
on tiptoes peeking over
Ruins perfect view.

Train shudders, departs.
like a vibrating fart on
polished wooden floor.

weeds haiku

Wall built to defend
invaders creep through remains.
Pretty hybrid weeds.
