AUGUST HAIKUS

Rainy weather Unpredictable; Drenching everything ~~~~~~~~~ Mother and child Dance with drizzle; Laughter and giggles ~~~~~~~~~ Happy lives here In my house; A welcome guest ~~~~~~~~~ Chinese ghost festival Lunar seventh month; Wandering spirits tour ~~~~~~~~~ Prayers and offerings For dead ancestors; Win-win situation ~~~~~~~~~ Church calendar So much happening; May lasting peace abide ~~~~~~~~~ Gaza strip conflict Nobody wins; Both sides suffering ~~~~~~~~~ Wars do not end Peace comes to the dead; All else is Hell ~~~~~~~~~ Love is the cause Of life -- and life Embraces all ~~~~~~~~~ Words intervene Hijacks silence; Elegance signs ~~~~~~~~~ Exuberance oozes Fond passion moves; Artistic postures ~~~~~~~~~ August in tears Sun on vacation; Wet masquerades ~~~~~~~~~ Emotional departure Gone forever; Death is relentless ~~~~~~~~~ Bedtime story Repeat broadcast; Night after night ~~~~~~~~~ 50 shades of grey Nothing erotic; Hair strands on bald patch ~~~~~~~~~ Speak softly Death's at the door; Don't disrupt business ~~~~~~~~~ Change Strange; Deranged ~~~~~~~~~ Moon glow magic Through dreary air; Eerie anti-climax ~~~~~~~~~ By that stone bench Distant Chinese pavilion; Ghostly presence ~~~~~~~~~ Giant moths circle Waiting to die; Messy debris ~~~~~~~~~ Dreamy moonlight Mid-autumn surprise; Moon cakes and desserts ~~~~~~~~~ Leon Enriquez 05 August 2014 Singapore
