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
