FRAGRANT TOUCH


(Dedication: For Regina Riddle)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Tree caterpillar crawling
Strong windy debris;
Blown over the bough


Violet blossoms
Vine decorations dancing;
Sun and breeze move


Joy wears a face:
Your smiles highlight;
Dazzle of morning


Hasty scribblings
Poetry in motion;
Grassy blooms unnoticed


Rose garden memories
Touch of rapture;
Thorny issues exfoliate


Sweet yellow guava
Pleasant tasty treat;
Oxford Road townhouse


This old Jasmine tree
Fondly remembers;
Our rowdy flower picking


Joy wears a face
Nature reveals seasons;
Change comes to all


Look to strange change
To re-jig feelings;
Afternoon rain respite


Be of good cheer
Bear with bad weather;
Dance with danger


Mid-autumn frolic
Peace in kind harvest;
Moon cakes and moonlight


Ghosts of lovers past
Touch of fond rapture;
Breezy plumeria garden


Voice in the wind
Fragrant with rain;
Black clouds threaten


Evening stroll
Hand-in-hand;
Plumeria flowers preside


So much to discern
Harmony trees here;
Gardens By The Bay


Evening serenade
Cicadas and frogs;
Sounds at nightfall


Orchard Boulevard stroll
Sense surrounds;
Fragrant touch sifting


Two yellow butterflies
Fluttering between shrubs;
Sky Bridge tower above


Haiku surprise
Or senryu moment;
Experience reveals


Observe dear heart
What nature shows;
See things clearly


Frangipani tree
Crimson and red flowers;
Walkway perfumery

Love, sweet key of joy
The stare into my eyes are...
Forever calling.

UNNOTICED


(Dedication: For Dr Ram Mehta.)


Morning light
Spreads divine psalm --
Touch of zest


By this stone bench
Sleeping cat purrs --
Feline dreamscapes


That old man sits alone
Strange neighbour --
Thoughtful wanderings


Sadness in shock:
Food court bankrupt --
Ghost town feeling 


Dress fitting session
Bridal gowns, smart suits --
A lovely affair


Just because
You said so --
Let it be then


Brief excursion
Nowhere near --
Beyond conflict


Open agenda
This showpiece --
Mood swing construct


Cheer wears a face
Serious as glee;
Smiles punctuate


For many hours
This wait upon --
Something new perhaps


Meal time in-between
Lunch and dinner --
Not quite the same


Gifts freely given
Notice brisk gratitude --
Thoughtful intent


Style a smile
Wait a while --
Cheer now piles


Explore fringes
Curiosity peeks --
Discovery sublime

ESSENTIALLY 2

(Dedication: For Paul Callus)


Time and space dance
Sorrow meets cheer
Sync with tact


Joy ever fades
Nothing much remains
Dust gathers


Joy even tempts
Offers nothing new
Dinosaur bones


Charm feeds
Empty charade
No escapade


Charm leaks
Messy tirade
Lament in loss


Words come
Echoes fling
Not much done


Words leave
Takeaway noise
Not much gain


Write in rhymes
Sign a song
Mind the glitch


Write in lines
Reason a poise
Mind the route


End game pulse
Matching
Point for point


End game tense
Cleaning up
Awkward feel


Haiku nature
Senryu posture
Cinqku textures


Fibonacci pulse
Strain in void
Quantum creation

STILLNESS

(Dedication: For Peter Duggan)


Listen well
Silence speaks
Calmly in stillness


Deep within
Silence reigns
All-knowing


If you but see
Clear and calm
Silence speaks wisely


Ask a question
Then wait and listen
Silence answers


To know the way
Heed the silence
Experience stillness


Here and now
Nowhere becomes
Now here


Empty yourself
Enter silence deep
Fullness in stillness


Eloquence speaks
In simple silence
All abides here

HAIKU SURREAL 5


(Dedication: For Anne-Lise Andresen.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Instant recognition
Blind attitude:
Sees more than enough


Despair reveals
An ugly side:
Indifference


Little by little
Sounds like a lot;
Hole in pocket


Witty lingo
Awkward tango;
Messy tempo


Learn quickly now
Wear a keen smile;
Screen faces you meet


Joy in sadness
Paradoxical frame;
Picture postcard sent


China in spring
Natural hymnal sounds;
No voice imitates


Peace in the valley
Nothing profound;
Extra plus ordinary fence


Haiku in season
Vivid frolic;
Wild things grow


Small child speaks
Profound sermon;
Hello uncle


Old uncle smiles:
How are you?
Small child hides face


Casual encounter
Familiar face pops up;
Crowded places fence


Birthday thoughts:
Song of morning --
Rapture illuminates 


Fifty-nine revolutions
Around the sun;
Celebrate miracles

HAIKU MOON

(Dedication: For Dave Wood, the Lyric Man)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Teary moonlight
Flash from heaven;
Lovers unite


Teenage lover boy
Bus-stop waiting;
Delayed arrival


Nicotine addict
Puffing for dear life;
Carcinogenic highs


Grass blades
Protrude through cracks;
Sidewalk stone slabs


College vacation
Rowdy students arguing;
Monsoon weather hurls


Housefly fly past
Unceremoniously;
Decadent visit


Stars decorate
Night sky twinkling;
Croaking August frogs


Anxious To-Do List
Smudge of raindrops;
Go with the flow


Crazy poet laughs
Mad self-talk;
Intoxicating grief


Back track then
To nowhere far;
Celestial timing


Words carved
Old tree trunk code;
Open secret


Grassy flowers
Humble affirmations;
Perennial song


Stray voices call
In these woods;
Bird song melody


Romantic ideas
Dehydrated fruits;
Winter sonata


Self-made home movie
Unknown stars;
Awkwardly famous
