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

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

Haikus 25/02/16

Freshly made green tea

With sugar added boldly

The taste of heaven

#

The Andes close by

Their snow caps from sea level

Like stationary clouds

#

Above thunderstorms

Shook up a bit but great view

Better than fire works

#

I’m illiterate

Until I learn the language

So I must study

The Rose of Tralee
Aren’t they all lovely girls
Crass misogyny

Coming late for work
But working late iate into the night
Will only go so far

The mad adventures
Of Ross O’Carroll Kelly
Addictive reading

Haikus 27/07/15

Romance beckons me
From far accross the ocean
I must go to it

Food glorious food
The greatest carnal delight
So hard to ignore

My innermost thoughts
Are a mystery to me
Who knows where they’ll go

An accented text
Can be a real joy to read
It brings words to life

Bloomsday Haiku

From the Irish Sea
A breeze whips around the tower
“Morning Mister Joyce”

Votes have been counted
The people have had their say
Everyone’s equal

Warm weather is back
After weeks of summer chill
This won’t last too long

I’ve stories to write
A lot of reasearch to do
It’s a busy week
