Haiku – cathartic

I write cathartic
Words as liquid pouring here
onto this lake's page

Tri-haiku XXXIV (the familiar)

The familiar
just like a comfort blanket
all uniquely mine

Something I cling to
to remind me that today
everything is peace

And I breathe easy
with familiarity
born of pure content

Thursday Haiku

Dripping from my pen
my Thursday haiku gathers
form and satisfies

Life-words-haiku

Sometimes a haiku
Gives all the words that I need
to make life complete

Sunday Haiku

A Sunday Haiku
in seventeen syllables
The right thing to do

Tri-haiku XXXIII (Heaven)

Afternoon sunshine
in June, deliciously hot
I am in heaven

But it is a place
on earth, as Belinda said
and she was quite right

Nowhere else I would
further be this afternoon
than right here right now

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 XI (winter blue returns)

8 of 10 in ‘The winter series’ from Jemverse

I am winter blue
Born to December, I chill
to iron cold bone

I am winter blue
To brittle January
icy fingers spread

I am winter blue
But with yellow I will change
to the green of Spring
