entering the station...
fused to the shiny rails 
the last of the sun 

Friday, 21 June 2013

alone on the phone wire...
a cuckoo in silhouette
swallows an insect

end of day sun—
from the moving train
a streak of fox

Monday, 17 June 2013

undulating long grass...
    undulating too
isles of red poppies

Saturday, 15 June 2013

from the river bank...
the blue of damselflies
in midday sun

Thursday, 13 June 2013

a few strokes
from the artist’s brush...
voilà a bird appears!

Tuesday, 11 June 2013

mix of bird song—
emerging from its pupa
a Painted Lady

Thursday, 6 June 2013

counting sheep—
before dawn breaks a burst
of blackbird song

Monday, 3 June 2013

bumping up the hill
our bus slowly enters
a swirling mist

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...
coal’s in short supply
so we join the queue
