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...

He played the part he knew so well
(the juggling acts, the ringing bells)
The smile he smeared across his face
(another act, to hide disgrace)
His laughter hid...

Tinkering over the pebbles
flowing freely onwards
smoothly
leaving in its wake soft ripples
as it travels homewards
blithely.

Of her own misfortunes

lacking all stakes and honor.

All others forfeit!

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

Confrontational
Words unnecessary;
Choice in no voice

On air-con ledge;
Morning sunrise

Plumeria flowers
Sparkling colours;
Morning salutation

Spring cleaning days

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...

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

On a hilly furrowed plane shrouded by leaves
Her way homewards she plods and heaves.

See her joggles on...

Competition
Distraction;
Extension


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?

Theses winding parts are long and cold.
All street lamps too are frosty.
