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')

Fallen petals: May haiku 2011

In Spring She fills
earth’s cup with violets,
overflowing.

3/5/11


you away
sounds of you absent
though I listen

7/5/11


while I’m ill
my fine strong basil bush
dies of cold

13/5/11


pale sunset
mountains turning indigo
in the last light

surrounded
in childhood in old age
by mountains

let me sing you
safely through the land
old land

let me sing you
through the mountains
dark is falling

darkness gathers
the old mountains
stand their ground


15/5/11


in spring-like warmth
my rose blooms again
every autumn

20/5/11


the silent people
watch from around the edges
of memory

Double Take

One Nation (Palin) —
Aussies share a private joke:
Sarah/Pauline. Twins.

What’s in a name?
Palin/Pauline, One Nation
in conformity.

still no word
from my young friend
in chemo

28/5/11


fallen petals
the rose still blooms
on the ground
