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

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

 

Haikus 061216

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

Haikus 13/08/15

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
