                        rain on and off
           all week—early puddles
                 of pink blossom 
                                      (for John McDonald)

          urban whiteness...
          a mute swan lands
          on the frozen lake

Saturday, 28 April 2012

                       as dawn breaks...
               the haunting sound
               of a cuckoo

almost midnight—
a sneeze every where
in the block of flats 
The above is a rewrite of a haiku
originally posted on 12 February...

in a dream—the hedge
partially blocking my view
has been trimmed and shaped

Thursday, 19 April 2012

           blustery day—
                  the tube stairwell
           lined with plane leaves

These leaves are not plane but they look colourful

a blackbird
in a bare tree—against
                 a bare sky 

Monday, 16 April 2012

between bare twigs...
an undulating spider’s web
dotted with dew           

Saturday, 14 April 2012

on the path—a dusting
of Mahonia blossoms...
all around its scent

Thursday, 12 April 2012

through frosted glass...
a joggling leaf trapped
by a spider’s thread  

Monday, 9 April 2012

                   after its repair—buddleia 
            shoots start to sprout
                from the old wall    

Sunday, 8 April 2012

                           grey sky...
          a solitary starling
          lets out a tweet

Friday, 6 April 2012

            afternoon shadows—
            on the dark glass river
            a swan glides along         

Thursday, 5 April 2012

         gentle wind—caught up  
         in the river’s current
                a cluster of leaves

Wednesday, 4 April 2012

       heavy mist—
       suspended in the sky
       a lamp’s yellow light

Tuesday, 3 April 2012

           in the glass tower:
           the old building
           twisted and warped

Sunday, 1 April 2012

         countryside stroll—
         along the green bank
         small bursts of colour
