I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

We emerge from darkness: haiku for August 2009


the feast of Imbolc
we emerge from the darkness
life renews itself


Sum up your day in the form of a haiku:

a spring-like winter
morning under piled blankets
noon stripped and sweating


the sun's up early
still haven't pruned those roses
winter's so soon past


Sum up your day in the form of a haiku:

I 'm cleaning the house
for an old friend's arrival
so work becomes love

knowing when we meet
our old friend won't see beyond
our welcoming smiles


On the evening beach
gigantic waves crash too close
although it’s low tide.


of all her faces
which so intrigue I like best
a simple back view

Flamenco dancer
moving like snake or like fire
in that sleek red dress


Mars comes close tonight
a second moon in a sky
too dark to see one.


In sudden flashlight
my cat’s eyes gleam like twin moons
against night-dark fur
