Haiku – Blithe Spirit

 

laughing gulls
the wind pushes me
into the sea

 

 
river moon
the silent lights
of a narrow boat

 

 
moth dust
a smudge of moon
through drifting clouds

 
Blithe Spirit vol 29 number 3 August 2019 ISSN 1353-3320

Haiku – Presence

 

dunnock’s eggs
a gunshot cracks
the sky

 

 

spring dawn
drizzle opens
a blue iris

 

 

no more waiting
for him to keep his promise
last plum blossom

Haiku – Femkumag

 

bindweed
the longevity
of words

 
little rituals
counting the elephants
in the room

 
fear of the dark he calls me witch
