I lit the candles

An offering to the gods

To help whom I love

#

Seven Months ago

I was melting in summer

What difference it is

#

Filters for my tank

Clogged with green strands of algae

Clearing it won’t last

Rain came here last week

It cleaned the air up nicely

The snow was so close

#

My three year old niece

She is repeating my words

Have to watch my tongue

#

Haikus 140318

Steel yourself young man

For Green beer and pipe music

Patrick’s day is near

#

Been told I’ve a talk

Haven’t a clue where or when

Some preparation

#

Over one year past

I tied the knot bye a tower

A year of pure love.

First trip from Chile

To not so warm Florida

I saw manatees

#

Queuing for visas

Lines going around the block

Many hours to wait

#

Job applications

Interviews, practice classes

Lots of work to do

Haikus 24/10/17

My wife is in bed

Sick with a blocked nose and cough

Treatment, tea and hugs

#

Dangerous spiders

May be found sneaking in our flat

They sure love bathrooms

#

Grandmother’s Birthday

She has reached one hundred years

And still going strong

Haikus 300917

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

Haikus 100917

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
