a headgehog
looking my way
lost in grief





out of nowhere
a bee
hungry for summer


(first published in the World Haiku Review, Vol. 6, Issue 3, May 2008)






Omagh from above
a butterfly in full bloom
spreading her wings
 

 

 



scars on the hillsides
gorse no longer wave
careless youth
 
 






spiders' patterns
on conifers...
wearing a fine shawl
 
 
 





cracks in the pavement
ants pulling
a fly

A swarm of midges

affords the pool its weather

swallows attack

gravel after rain

patches of pink and yellow

fading

avenue of tree trunks -

joining branches

narrow the pathway

Down the spider’s thread

that ties my door,

a spark of shine

 

 

 

Writing messages –

willows dip fingers into

the languid liver

 

 

 

Dandelion suns

turned moons –

the wind halves and quarters them

 

 

 

Oak leaf

in a still puddle,

autumn’s first footprint

 

 

 

Cotoneaster

where an orchestra of bees

tunes up for summer

 

 

 

still lake

red deer

drinking sky

 

 

 

bandaged in ivy,

last winter's

broken tree

summer storm –

between the maize fields

a strip of heat

two herons hunting

in shallow water at dusk

one strikes, one ripples




frosted hills blazing

with brilliant winter light

I can hardly look




budding on the tips

of leafless branches,

raindrops full of light

autumn breeze

spider's web

convex... concave

scattered sheep

in an early morning field -

boulders in the mist

 



talking it out

again

with my absent wife

morning frost

robin searches for

the first bite

yellow rose

nods in the breeze

my father’s smile

 



pale sun

black cats snuggle

merging into one

 



gathering leaves

a surprise gift of

lavender scent
