Haiku

 

missing
from May
cuckoo’s song

drifting mist
a swan swims
from cloud to cloud

ploughed fields –
the lines in his face
etch deeper

Creatrix September 1 2016

 

road rage
a fly’s frantic buzzing
on the windscreen

suburban night
an empty beer can
plays with the wind

his last breath
the wind takes the last
orchard leaf

New Year’s Eve
a blackbird turns over
old leaves

a slight dusting of snow
a courting robin whispers
in the leaves

spring sunrise
birdsong cuts across
our conversation

late autumn afternoon
our lengthening shadows
at mother’s grave

the soft patter
of snow on the window
baby’s first steps

a snowman
with no nose
