Tri-haiku XXXII – Time’s passage

The last of the month
where has February gone?
already it’s March

But no complaints here
for summer’s ever closer
Warmer daytime soon

Coupled with new growth
Springtime around the corner
with grass now greener

Tri-haiku XXXI (Daffodil Laughter)

A vibrant greeting
bursting in Springtime yellow
sunshine to my day

A splash of colour
to the monotone palette
of winter greyness

Daffodil laughter
brightens up most any day
Truly infectious

A haiku for Sunday

Quality of life
seized in every moment of
this Sunday of rest

Tri-haiku XXX (lucidity)

Haiku for Friday
as here in reflection I
position my muse

Of course there are words
The one constant in my gift
for mystery here

And yet for readers
moments of lucidity
with clarity here

a glimpse of today’s Brighton
History merges

Swans (haiku)

Swans on Widewater
nestled behind the beach
here on Sussex coast

[The ‘Widewater’ lagoon running along the Brighton Road between Lancing and Shoreham in West Sussex, UK is a brackish strip of tidal water. Sandwiched between the road and the sea and protected by a man-made shingle bank on the seaward side, it’s about a mile long and a haven for birds].

Tri-haiku XXIX (Fireworks)

Bright against the sky
Bangs and sparkles, cries of joy
Fireworks in the night

Muted though this year
as no supermarkets sell
them to public now

Yet still we find ways
to recall Gunpowder Plot
for our child-like joy

3 in a series of 6

As midweek arrives
three of six poetics with

Tri-haiku XXVIII (Healing)

With no abandon
to a mediocrity
I wait with patience

Hasten the mending
the healing of wounds and ills
Bring back spring to step

For I am waiting
Breath bated, coiled to move
to those hills again
