It’s raining outside

I would be drenched to the skin

Best to stay inside

#

New plants in fish tank

Hopefully these will survive

Aquascaping woes

#

Correcting English

In the head guys manuscript

Hope he won’t get mad

Independence day

Celebrated Chilean Style

The dieciocho

#

More Jobs applied for

Here´s hoping this time´s the charm

But no guarantees

#

More Spanish Lessons

Will be starting very soon

Hope I learn something

#

It´s spring possibly

The buds on the trees say yes

But the cold winds no

Interviewed today

By young college film students

On immigrant life

#

Writing in Spanish

Can never find the right word

Need dictionary

#

My brand new CV

Written in my new language

Wife says it’s nonsense

Haikus 21/08/17

Lying on the couch

I suddenly feel shaking

Not quite an earthquake

#

Aquarium lights

Newly purchased L.E.Ds

Looks like a disco

#

Science fiction vlog

All very interesting

Creativity

Photo exhibit

Images from the whole world

Makes us all look small

#

Fish tank without light

Plants seem to be surviving

Maybe not needed

#

Job applications

Are just lying through your teeth

Better than the rest

Learning Español

Working, on speaking, writing

Not very easy

#

Over whole weekend

Did absolutely nothing

We just ate pizza

#

Back on the internet

I got a new  computer

Hope this isn’t robbed

Haikus 09/07/17

See my darling wife

Covered to her face in sheets

Her natural state

#

Snow in the mountains

Better than it raining there

Cuts in water suck

#

Five hour difference

Between my old home and new

Makes chat difficult

Haikus 140317

Forever worried

About the gold band slipping

Newly married fears

##

Rain higher up now

Scarring the mountain’s white caps

See Global warming

##

On the underground

Trying to enjoy the trip

But too much music

Southern Hemisphere

Is the wrong damn way around

Christmas in summer???

####################

Pure ammonia

Smell like week old rat’s urine

Really hangs about

#####################

 

Christmas tree is up

Covered in many knick-knacks

Collected through life

Southern Hemisphere

Internet friends sun bathing

While I’m here freezing

Football fans everywhere

Looking to the action in France

The world holds its breath
