Poetry from a Dublin Scientist

Month: April, 2016

Haikus 18/04/16

Rain all the weekend

Then on Monday an tremor

Now what will happen?


Flooding in the streets

Eventually subsides

Leaving dirt everywhere


During sunny days

Sunlight bakes the air opaque

For rain to wash clear

Haikus 12/04/16

The election’s over

Now’s the time for horse-trading

For our government


It’s raining today

It makes a really big change

From a four month drought


The Cat started shy

But is becoming friendly

Slowly but surely

Limericks 12/04/16

Upon landing in Chile*

A lady beside me did say

“If there’s an Earthquake

And your home starts to shake

Get the hell out sans delay.”


*(FYI… Over here they Pronounce it Chilay)


If there was one thing for which I would wish

It would be a huge tank for my fish

And just for a lark

Perhaps a shark

That will find all the rest real delish


The Heat of Your Heart

I am cold

Shivering in the cool air of the night

Seeking whatever warmth I can find

So I reach out

Reach out to you

And I am finally warm

Keeping myself close to you

And basking in

The heat of your heart
