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 

~~~~~~~~~
