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')

Wet Spring: December haiku 2011

wet Spring
my parsley dies
anyway

1/12/11


fairytale mountains
misty in the crevices
outlines floating clear

2/12/11


Who comes silently
in the rain
glimpsed as a shadow?

5/12/11


the day is over
told the truth
and we all survived

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

he goes to bed now
head aching
a long kiss goodnight

#lunes

full moon eclipse night
overcast
we’re early to bed

#lune

10/12/11


sleeping cat
paw covering eye
‘Do Not Disturb’

16/12/11


the atheists
have all the best arguments
come to the same end

18/12/11


at SummerSolstice
all I ask of the Goddess
is my darling’s health

22/12/11


a quiet circle
as two old people
observe the Solstice

the earth quakes
a cyclone threatens
we breathe deep

guided by instinct
we pray for balance
and a good outcome

23-4/12/11


I read poetry
quietly
the porridge burns

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

when I was four
my first naked pink earthworm
so alien I ran screaming

28/12/11


poetry workshops
in Pentridge Prison
time of my life

(Details)


29/12/11



no Christmas greeting
yet no obituary
for her a new year?
