Sample Sunday: 12 haiku



The sheltering moon
Beneath her glimmer they roam
Free, the wild wolves howl


Tinkle of a bell
Leaping he snatches the bird
Heart beating softly


Within Autumn mists
Spectre trees blow in the breeze
Bend their boughs too low


Time ticks tock tick tock
Shadows curse the chill hour
Deathly midnight, hush


We wake in the morn
Escaping dreams we lived in
As light breaks the dark


Raspberries blood red
Ripe, soft and so succulent
Chilled ice-cream slithers


In the dry still heat
The lizard basks, eyes aloft
Watching out for lunch


Brown dog woofs, chasing
Giddy circles without sense
His tail evades him


Thoughts unwind unseen
Remembering rain-filled days
Where the grass smells green


Eyes turn to the sun
River of blue-black shimmers
On peacock feathers


Ice blows a blanket -
Protects the silent sleeping
Bears that birth tonight


He showers at night
Rippling muscles of delight
Water trickles down
