first past the post...
a smile spreads across
        the punter’s face

Winter 1962/1963 - A Haiku Sequence

boxing day...
our back door is opened
to four feet of snow

what an adventure!
three exited children
dig their way out

a freeze sets in...
we join the coal queue
it’s in short supply

a magpie’s quick twist...
before dropping into
the tree’s dense top

sunny day in March...
from a crack near the wall
a dandelion bloom

Thursday, 22 March 2012

humid day—
my tee shirt peppered
     with flying ants

Monday, 19 March 2012

looking down...
my father's hands
stare back at me

climbing the hill...
slowly our bus enters
     a swirling mist

Thursday, 15 March 2012

beneath the bush...
just sunshine and 
a few crocus blooms

Tuesday, 13 March 2012

into its island nest
a coot tries to merge
a silver wrapper

old church...
its clock on the wall
long stopped

Friday, 9 March 2012

a walk in the park...
still the boyhood thrill
of finding a conker

Wednesday, 7 March 2012

nearly cheering...
the winning greyhound
in the virtual race

Tuesday, 6 March 2012

sun low in the sky...
        snails’ silver trails
crisscross the pavement

Thursday, 1 March 2012

after spring cleaning...
a huge orange sun
dazzles the day's end
