AHA HAIKU 19

Morning buzz Grandeur and grace; Pleasant surprise ~~~~~~~~~ Floral bouquet Scented extravagance; Rose garden escapade ~~~~~~~~~ City lights twinkle Evening charades; Dinner for two ~~~~~~~~~ Father's Day comes Commercial success; Family reunion ~~~~~~~~~ Ink stains Words on paper; Cursive metaphors ~~~~~~~~~ Kitchen chit-chat Witty small talk; Espresso ideas ~~~~~~~~~ Sleepy somnolence Eyelids heavy; Dreamy pursuits ~~~~~~~~~ Birdsong duet Dawn serenade; Hopes and dreams ~~~~~~~~~ Late night escapade Tryst downtown; Posh after hours ~~~~~~~~~ Lovely visit Hearts fluttering; Retirement home ~~~~~~~~~ Doctors hover Cryptic diagnosis; Standing on needles ~~~~~~~~~ Home-cooked meal Gourmet delights; Three Michelin stars ~~~~~~~~~ Work words well Time to tell; Dazzle dwells ~~~~~~~~~ Wet market stalls Smiling vendors tout; Welcome offerings ~~~~~~~~~ By these shores Distant ships buoy; Brief stopover ~~~~~~~~~ By and by Distant dreams; Across the horizon ~~~~~~~~~ Bamboo chopsticks Teriyaki salmon rice; Comfort food ~~~~~~~~~ Morning cuppa Awakening senses; Sleepy daze ~~~~~~~~~ Leon Enriquez 19 June 2016 Singapore
