The day after (haiku)

3 of 3 (1 the day before, 2 yesterday)

And after all that
a long walk in winter sun
to dust off cobwebs

The Day (haiku)

2 of 3 (1 yesterday, 3 tomorrow)

Christmas Day is here
festivity, fun and glee
and very late lunch

The Eve (haiku)

1 of 3 (2 tomorrow, 3 the day after)

On the eve before
as anticipation looms
softly comes the night

Tri-haiku XXXIX (vibrant)

Vibrant this colour
at this golden time of year
when greenery fades

And the sunset comes
The years' full swansong sings loud
with echos to gold

Leaving me speechless
Silenced by this golden awe
at the curtain call

Rhythm II (reprise)

6 of 10 in the Jemverse series ‘Music II’

As the music fades
with the rhythm of my drum
I am still dancing

Haiku for Tuesday rain

3 of 7 in ‘The Syllabic series 22’ from Jemverse

There is sun today
or at very least promise
amidst the grey cloud

Tri-Haiku XXXVIII (Friday)

And so to Friday
for a switch-off come lunchtime
into the weekend

And breathe deep, relax
soak up the fact that this is
deliciously mine

And so it will be
to use wisely and enjoy
pending the new week

Best Thursday Haiku

And here for Thursday
three lines to herald a day
and wish it the best

Tri-haiku XXXVII (Essence)

Yesterday it rained
quite persistently throughout
so inside we stayed

Today though it's dry
and the birds are singing sweet
songs about the day

So outside we'll go
to breathe in the world around
and feel its essence

Seven

7 of 7 in the ‘Seven Haikus 22 series’ from Jemverse

There's something about
writing a haiku each day
that always inspires
