Premium Member HAIKU MOON
(Dedication: For Dave Wood, the Lyric Man)

Teary moonlight
Flash from heaven;
Lovers unite


Teenage lover boy
Bus-stop waiting;

Puffing for dear life;

Grass blades
Protrude through cracks;
Sidewalk stone slabs

and out of poverty!

The housefly perches
again on the cow dung
and back to our food!

The sun sets by itself

cholera an' dysentery.

to sprout the grain
Devil, drought
giving people naught.

God made all rivers

Dancing across magnificent magpies excavated graves
Squirming yellow shining housefly larvae she enslaves
Swimming  through thick sticky b-positive tidal waves
