HAIKUVERSE HARVEST

January juxtapose More cold now Beyond hot heat! Cold cold air Windy surprise; Minus heat therapy? Winding way whirls Shiver seeding shiver January jostling juice Lotus sunbathe -- Muddy pond flavours Mid-afternoon glare Misdirected Whim and fancy; Windy detours New year in late January, Oozing days forfeit; Scent of the times! Why do I Reason with reason; To justify nothing Wind chimes Breezy orchestra Sparrow salute Stillness Silence sways calmly; Usher enlightenment? Haiku Hokku How To? Vivid wonder In nothing new; Only fresh eyes One by one Images flash by; Like old friends Memory swirls Round and round; Circles to devour! My darling dearest Sleep-talking again; Smiles pay tokens So many curves: Drop-dead gorgeous; No time to sip! Deep deep dark Catch curvy craze Sense stillness shout No need for nice, Just pay the price; Indulge sheer surprise! Here by Lovely, lonely shore No one but me! New expressway Halting jam frustration; Missing clear detour! When I speak Words do not come; Silence stays Happiness: Fleeting dry ice, Carbon dioxide complex Sublime Subdued Sensations Glow in your eyes Hint of sexy ideas -- Measured in your smile! Love looks lovely Rain running rowdy Sheer shifting sights Splendour courts, Grandeur tiptoes , Silence succumbs Igloo atmosphere Air-con ice cold Shivering skin tones Tales awaiting Weary bones; Fireside conversations Nature nurtures Quaint restraint; Silence raptures haiku Sanguine rapture, Observe the scenario; Can you see now? Pulse of new morning Glow in your eyes; Heart to heart Moon glow Aqua aura Familiar wink Somnolence Scattering sensations Swift spread sweetening Slow morning edging Indulgent Indulgence Wake-up call Early morning darkness Drowsy in dim light Fumbling footsteps Pre-dawn precursor Tentative waiting Drowsy Dreamy Discovery Oil painting self-talk Kostabi's imagery Passageway decor Mind the view Pending rapture In-transit here Feelings surge Raw word fumbling Echoes in reprieve Listen The wind calls Whispers your name Look to your self As best you can; Then understand When and where And how and why Say who and what Frozen time Thaws to water Down the drain Time equals life Oozing away Does it matter? Love plays A game; Only fools smile gleefully! Leon Enriquez 09 Mar 2014 Singapore

Leon, this is heavenly. I took my time reading these haiku, but was worth it. You've got a way with expressing a lot in so little words. Haiku is a 'crafty' yet intricate tool. Keep it up. // paul

Dear Paul: So glad you took the time to browse, reflect and enjoy the haiku moment fragments. Why did I put so much online in this instance? The haiku master Basho said something like this: "If you sit and observe nature and your self, you should be able to write at least 20 to 30 haikus. Don't bother about perfection. Just write. You will get a feel and grow better over time." I have taken this advice to heart, and I have periodic haiku marathons with my self. This can take 1-2 hours, at late hours. Thanks for your visit, my friend. Leon
