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')

Muffled thunder: October haiku 2011

playing chasey
the incoming tide
laughing

*********

quiet rain
tonight the world mourns
dead genius

‘Retweet if you’re 
touching an Apple product.’
I am, of course.

cold morning
woken too early
restless cats

my man wakes
demands the time
back to sleep

get up feed the cats
I’m awake
the cats are resting

wet Spring
the cacti grow 
invisibly

13/10/11


playing online
nourished by haiku
I forget breakfast

15/10/11


the empty bin
is propped on its side
by the yellow lid

across the road
the garbage bin looks jaunty
propped on its yellow lid

21/10/11


the clock
ticks loudly
late

28/10/11


imagine
light through the trees
grey magic

*************

I prepare muesli
offering
to Hestia first

29/10/11


muffled thunder
the women meet
share secrets
