AHA HAIKU

Morning drizzle Drops of rainbow; Colours dazzle ~~~~~~~~~ Weather contrast Hot and dehydrating; Sticky humidity ~~~~~~~~~ Lonely songbird Dawn epiphany; Lost lover's lament ~~~~~~~~~ New journal entry Ring-bound folio; Ink stain memory ~~~~~~~~~ Sleepy distractions Lazy Saturday weather; Bakery fragrance ~~~~~~~~~ Towering monolith War memorial site; Our glorious dead ~~~~~~~~~ Relics of war here Public cenotaph; Never ever forget ~~~~~~~~~ City lights twinkle Festive air prevails; May Day holiday ~~~~~~~~~ Valedictory speech Gratitude meets promise; Ambitious plans ~~~~~~~~~ Squirrel zigzags Sideways on huge trunk; Midday amusements ~~~~~~~~~ Old friend visits Home spun stories; Catch-up laughter ~~~~~~~~~ Pretty lovely child Charming glowing smile; Curious ways attest ~~~~~~~~~ Leon Enriquez 10 May 2016 Singapore

Dear Sara: Glad these fragments delighted you. Yes, I pass by this huge 100-year old tree nearby my house on the way to the shops. Sometimes, I see this brown squirrel and some days it's out of sight. I love squirrels. Thank you for your kind words. Leon
