ABOUT ME

Jigsaw puzzle patchwork:
Verses that I love —
Bound by a stern code;


Quotable quotes saved:
In mellow memory —
A quilt of earthly scents;


Rhyme and time and chime:
Flavours of...

ESPRESSO
by Leon Enriquez



Morning thunder grips
Shock awakening
A fragrant brew flips
Cuppa brown brew sings


Wet wet morning rain
Misty drowning feel
An aqueous deep pain
Drawing close to heal


Clash of lightning strokes
Thunder claps...

Superstitious Shopper

Who hexed the price?
Made the bargain lose its luster
Who’s selling dull kitchenware knives?
Trying to cut away consumer confidence
There’s no hand lotion in the ladies room,

In a swift flow
Old times catch-up,
Three in a row
Espresso cups.


Queen Street unfurls
With simple flair,
We sit...

COFFEE FIX
by Leon Enriquez



Coffee brew
Warm mouth swirl
Sip a few
Gulp warms world


Caffeine fix
Bitter taste
Brown brew mix
In brisk haste


Espresso
In two shots
Dawn's credo
Frames my lot


Eyes once blur
Open wide
No more slur
Plain talk...

a cup of 
morning coffee.
You give energy,

giving me a perfect mix. 
When I...

HAIKU MAZE 14
by Leon Enriquez



Beauty smiles
Truth keeps watch;
Joy murmurs

~~~~~~~~~


Jacuzzi trip
Clear water massage;
Aqueous healing

~~~~~~~~~


Midtown moments
Sunny side up;
Poignant flavours

~~~~~~~~~


Walkway charades
Morning fiesta;
Umbrella cacophony

~~~~~~~~~


Old Mister Lee
Two years gone;
Tembusu memoir

~~~~~~~~~


Such silly antics
Blindside politics;
Monkey business

~~~~~~~~~


Glimpses...

Espresso time with double shot,
Hot caffeine rhymes with oomph I plot.


Watch people come for a warm fix.
Seek cuppa sums in a brown mix.


Swirl of hot...

HAIKU PATH 3
by Leon Enriquez


Time stops
Zen garden glimpse;
Monkey mind silent

~~~~~~~~~


Falling leaves
Dead brown clusters;
Transitory brief

~~~~~~~~~


Walkway commotion
Naughty child screams;
Miniature dog barks

~~~~~~~~~


Limping old lady
Struggles with pain;
Wobbly knees bent

~~~~~~~~~


Coming and going
So much fanfare;
Traffic...

IS SMILES

What this is, is smiles 
     in outskirts of my mouth, 
The sound of sleep, lazy house.
Tick-tock alarm somewhere.
Rain taps the window.
Awake early mornings;
Early bird,

The Cafe's Apparation

The Mahogany door... was smooth,
as my palm kneaded its rich burgundy finish. 
Solitude…

Journal’s are leafed...

COFFEE CUPPA
by Leon Enriquez


Dawn comes around
Drowsy eyes ground


Blurry new strain
Espresso gain


Stride now sleepy
Gaze now blurry


Misty cold rain
Monsoon spreads plain


Slow movement yokes
Dreamy form strokes


Abrupt this light
Dash drowsy sight


Now brew...
