Blue diaphane, tobacco smoke
 Serpentine on wet film and wood glaze,
 Mutes chrome, wreathes velvet drapes, 
Dims the cave of mirrors. 
Ghost fingers
 Comb seaweed...

The smile he smeared across his face

His laughter hid...

Barely in the door
And she's telling funny stories
Of her own misfortunes
The comedy of errors that harried...

Evening cascades
Journey homewards;
Work hiatus


Spring hurls
Fragrant blossoms;

Sky bound yearnings;
Sun mesmerising


Joy sparkles
Spring melodies;
Buzz of freshness


Long bank queue
Urgent transactions;
Cash is king


Overseas studies
Payments to make;
Vested future


Waiting an...

Ode to the Winning Chess Player---Or, For The Checkmated Winners

Chess is over
lacking all stakes and honor.

All others forfeit!
Let's ignore the real someone and scatter...

Early start
East Coast Ferry Terminal;
Sleepy journey

Trip for two
Getaway spa resort;
Rest and recuperate

Mystic moments:
Retreat into void --
Battery recharging

To re-jig sense
Spur sensorial feel;
Find and anchor

Getaway mode
Three days...

National Anthem
Familiar motherland music;
Stop to ponder SG50**


Hidden agenda
Crafty demeanour;
Unspoken moves


Words unnecessary;
Choice in no voice


Two sparrows chat
On air-con ledge;
Morning sunrise


Plumeria flowers
Sparkling colours;
Morning salutation


Spring cleaning days
Christmas is...

Premium Member HAIKU MOMENT 1

Evening descends
Running track overture;
Brisk walk abstract


Late night commute
Transit trains empty;
Small talk echoes


Brisk walk homewards
Wind follows footsteps;
Seeking company


Supper for dinner
Cold dishes now;
Busy delay


Old lady struggles
Bad knee...

My life so far:
I met my love one summer's day

Amongst the fields threshing hay

Her bonnet slung about her neck

As homewards afterwards we did trek

Her bonny brown hair

to waist...

Premium Member MAY MOMENTS 3


This May Day pause
Labour rests;
Just a moment

Holiday calm
Before the storm;
Breakaway norms

Slow stroll strides
Mini-mart long queue;
Confront waiting charade

Purchase in tow
Two full hands struggle;
Bear laden stuff homewards

Moon view through bamboo pines,
Mystic magic aura;
Blue glow in brief grapevine,
Silence weaves through flora.

Late evening I stroll,
By this parkway alone;
Straying thoughts drift and roll,
Cold wind...

Is death another journey,
Just another ride,
Are you my burning passion,
Burning deep inside?
Are the winding roads of destiny,
Illusions in the night,
Butterflies just dancing,
In hazardous drunken flight?
