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

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


Haikus 15/08/17

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

Haikus 250717

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
