Haiku ( death dirges )

Frogs in distance sing  .  .  .
Foxes, herons, join in too,
  .  .  .  A round of croaking.



Senryū | Haiku  ( love gifts )

Her gift of flowers  .  .  .
Came at night without garden,
  .  .  .  Were picked in bedroom.



Senryū | Haiku  ( twins demure )

Full moon and she  .  .  .
Beauties without crescent smile,
  .  .  .  Naked in starlight.



Haiku  ( light music )

Before even sun  .  .  .
Gleam opens to paint each day,
  .  .  .  Beauty in birdsong.



Haiku  ( iridescent )

After sun showers  .  .  .
Sparkle of rainbow colours,
  .  .  .  Busy hummingbirds



Haiku  ( chilling )

Hollow sound through trees,
Naked and bare branches sway,
  .  .  .  Old winter creeping.



Senryū  ( flirting )

She wanted a child  .  .  .
Rushed from one suitor to next,
  .  .  .  Clock set to maybe.



Haiku  ( supervillain )

Truth once singular  .  .  .
Mucked all up with politics,
  .  .  .  In cowl of falsehoods.



Haiku  ( casualties)

Blood spills in gardens  .  .  .
Naïve worms torn from loose grounds,                                                         ­       
  .  .  .  Red robins, green lawns.



Haiku  ( stigmata )

Each spring miracle  .  .  .
Trees blessed by caterpillars gifts,
  .  .  .  Holey hands of leaves.



Haiku  ( consecrations )

Ripples lead to bows  .  .  .
After fish breaks the water,
  .  .  .  A kingfisher dives.



Haiku  ( constancy )

Steadfast as always  .  .  .
Wildflower in sun and rain,
  .  .  .  Showing true colours.



Senryū | Haiku  ( roomates )

Chaste lovers wonder  .  .  .
How bodies weather the cold,
  .  .  .  Never knowing touch.



Senryū | Haiku  ( swept away )

Suddenly we kissed  .  .  .
At beach as tides rolling in,
  .  .  .  Drowning by ocean.



Senryrū | Haiku  ( seductress )

Her red hair so long  .  .  .
Brushing my face, hiding eyes,
  .  .  .  A kind entrapment.

Trees (haiku #1)

Tree wood with fire
Nature equips survival   
Light, heat, and cooking

-------------------------

Trees (haiku #2)

Leafy beings, green
Wood umbrellas, ancient roots
Growing, reaching sky

-------------------------------

Trees (haiku #3)

Pluck the tender fruit
Motherly branches feed all
Body and soul, blessed

---------------------------------

Trees (haiku #4)

Shelter for our homes
Furniture within our walls
Uses-myriads

--------------------------------

Trees (haiku #5)

Pencils, books, paper
Education thanks to trees
Writing, poetry

-------------------------------

Trees (haiku #6)

Trees crafted, songs sung
Guitars, violins, harps-more
Wood, melodious

---------------------------------

Trees ( haiku #7)

Birds, critters depend
Harmonious relations
Trees magical grace

------------------------------

Trees (haiku #8)

Bountiful beauty
Standing upright or chopped down
More precious than gold

This haiku is like
Another haiku within
A meta-haiku

4 Haiku for the spirit

To fly far away
Let clouds absorb unhappiness
Tears a summer lake

Haiku
Melancholy
Unburden my heart of grief
Leave as morning fog

Haiku
As an eagle soar
Weightless for a second
As an oak leaf falls

Haiku
The burden of mist
Obscuring dawn's brilliance
Silent is the house

Haiku
Camembert she said
Smells like a pussy on fire
Catnap near the grate


Haiku
Not in stable born
Jesus a middle class dude
Didn't need a manger

Haiku
Shielded from the law
Under a park bench sleeping
Big Ben and New Year  

Haiku
Moonlight in rivers
Downstream a wizened face floats
A New Year Begins
