Sample Sunday: haiku from my new book

Hi, happy Sunday to ya! Here are some haiku from my forthcoming book, Life's Rhythms, which is coming very soon, published by InknBeans Press ... 

In blue essence deep
The old wise ones turn to sleep
Where lost shadows weep

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

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

Almonds and sweet cream
Filled cakes depart from this world -
Yum, straight into my tum!

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

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

In haste we are born,
Only to struggle searching
The purest of heart

Candles dripping drop
Falling fiery yellow,
Burns in the shy hand

Chasing the endless
She dreams of the living dolls
Breathing their lost lives

Timeless, it still stands ­
Relic to an ancient god
Tells of a distant sun

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

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