whirr of traffic—through
white nets a white cat
in stalking mode

new year’s day
in a black sky the moon
and a crane’s red lights

Saturday, 28 March 2009

first bet of the year
my greyhound tumbles
out of the trap

Friday, 27 March 2009

laid up at home…
bananas in a bowl
turning black
old bell tower
through its open window
ropes swinging wildly

open town park—just
one yellow crocus amongst
a carpet of blue

Tuesday, 24 March 2009

without thinking
the self-adhesive stamp
gets a lick

day just breaking
for a moment the cry
of passing geese
haiku discussion
my chain of thought ruined

by two battling coots

HAIGA # 20

twilight shadows…
a fox cub starts to play
with the dog on a lead

in half-light
on the pathway

two crushed daffodils

Wednesday, 18 March 2009

dusk descending
between two blocks of flats

a landscape of light

HAIGA # 19

chippy in the square
deftly a gull lands and eats
a plate of cold scraps

Saturday, 14 March 2009

art exhibition...
disappointment written
all over your face
thinking of you
slowly the sugar sinks
through the coffee’s froth
strawberry fields—
a pigeon walks across
the “imagine” circle

Wednesday, 11 March 2009

station concourse…
a pigeon slips & slides
across the tiled floor

an icy wind—above
the town’s clamour
the cawing of crows

Sunday, 8 March 2009

shop window—a boy
waves gingerly
to the automaton cobbler

Saturday, 7 March 2009

steady rain
a crow flies slow and low
across the empty road
listening with my eyes
to the
"Pines of Rome"

Bumping Along - 2001

standing in the bowl
of a dead volcano
listening intently…

a grey sunday…
and the mono-sound

of a singing drunk

Sunday, 1 March 2009

a white morning
through swirling mist
the red of a pheasant
