she asks a question
all around answer
on my behalf

Friday, 26 December 2014

late Turner
his world ablaze
with golden light

Wednesday, 10 December 2014

bus running late—
in the crotch of a branch
a full moon resting

Seasons greetings to all & best wishes for 2015!

Saturday, 6 December 2014

broad daylight
a fox’s crazy weave
across the front lawn

Wednesday, 3 December 2014

river walk
the cooling tower’s steam
joins a white cloud

again delayed
the train window’s raindrops
slowly disappear

Sunday, 9 November 2014

quiet evening—
contrails fade into
sun-filled clouds

Thursday, 6 November 2014

clouds brim with light...
on the lawn a squirrel
& a rolling leaf

Wednesday, 29 October 2014

        stillness by the river...
        a kingfisher’s blue streak
        colours the day’s end

Sunday, 26 October 2014

    an evening at rest—
    a leaf tumbles into the river
    and becomes a boat

wind & rain
in a web leaf & spider

Sunday, 12 October 2014


keys cover
the wet concrete path—
sycamore seeds!

a light breeze
a sycamore key dangles
from the spider’s web

full moon...
not feeling as chipper
as yesterday

sunday morning
from the recycling centre
an anger of smashed glass

Friday, 26 September 2014

early morning—
the dawn chorus
sings in my head 

Wednesday, 24 September 2014

afternoon concert...
lost in muffle
the presenter’s intro

Saturday, 20 September 2014

via frosted glass...
the spider seems to exist
as a blurred world

Wednesday, 17 September 2014

in the distance...
the setting sun turns
a high-rise gold

Tuesday, 16 September 2014

silent wings—
two crows alight in sync
on separate aerials

Friday, 12 September 2014

during a heat wave
for a instant the lake
is pea-green soup

Wednesday, 10 September 2014

circular ripples...
a coot’s bald head
nods to the surface

Friday, 5 September 2014

slow motion—
green algae rolls over
a duck’s white chest

Monday, 1 September 2014

after a sad film
a yellow crescent moon
in a black sky

Saturday, 23 August 2014

twilight—the edge
of a white cloud
brims with gold light

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

A Short Haiku Sequence...

threatening rain...
a huge orange sun
sits on the horizon

a brief deluge...
the sky quickly turns
to misty grey

Saturday, 9 August 2014

 closer look—my breath
       sparks a flickering
in the spider’s web
