Haiku- my abiding memory

      january cold
pure white snowflakes are falling-
            write winter poems

      february ice
hangs from the bare tree branches-
            walks in still nature

      march is a lion
harsh cold winds and ice warnings-
             planning my garden

      april and melting
rivers of snow on the street-
            dreaming of sweet spring

      may is a whisper
gentle breezes caress hair-
            I buy daffodils

      june and loud thunder
nature is washing my world-
             touch buds in garden

      july and the sun
my world is full of color-
            write flower verses

      august is lazy
oh the flowers are fading-
            I pen of decay

      september and rain
that is dripping from green leaves-
            walks in the deep woods

      october falling
descending orange beauty-
            poems of autumn

      november chills come
cold crisp winds and blowing storms-
            thinking of summer

      december stillness
waiting for snow to show up-
            I write christmas words

3 Haiku

In January 2007 the fishing trawler, 'Pere Charles'was lost off Dunmore EastCo Waterford, 
Ireland, with the loss of five fishermenI knew four of them, two very well.

                                         Pere Charles 

                                   Soft water all quiet
                           Bubbles of air take last breath
                               Five souls bid goodbye

                                       Flowing Music

                                   White water tinkling 
                                Exudes musical moments
                                  Hear a perfect peace

                                           Soft Power

                                      Soft flowing water
                               Creates valley and canyon
                                      Kisses ocean, free

Love Like A Mighty Oak

you dried all my tears
i stand proud now like the oak---
no weeping willow

your splendid branches
wrap me into your shadow---
shelter from the storm

wind blows me down
your light lifts me up---
might i dwell in your arms?

Mr and Mrs Dumpty, Egg-cidental Death

He lay there, shattered,

                    the shell of his former self,

          scrambled beyond hope..

Not really her fault..

                    all she wanted was a quiche,

          but she'd pushed too hard.

Pour Love

Pour love everywhere
Veer fairy lilies gently
Thrilling spring’s beauty

Plant white carnation
Daisies are chanting “Holy”
Freeing harmony

Pour love everywhere
Palm branches cuddle lily
Wine is spring’s honey 

Plant dwarf gladiolus
A rosy crown is homey
Fairy’s sketch pretty.
By: Nadia ShahwanThis poem "Pour Love" won an honorable mention in June
2009, then became the winner in January 2010.

A Winter Haiku

                                                    On a barren tree
                                                 A Cardinal stops to rest
                                                    Bleakness flies away

Juicy lips like raspberry,

New moonrise
Luna aura;
Misty magic


Swaying trees
Tender saplings;
Spring decor


Wet evening air
Weather ominous;
Midnight storm


Random faces
Crowded walkway;
Bus stop moments


Old lady smiles
Ask directions;
Someone helps


Artistic brush strokes;
Less is more


Dreary weather
Thunder punctuates;
Wet window panes


New book in hand
Held but not read;
Touch momento


TV sitcom
Chapter 29;
Good versus Bad


Evening glow
Deep dark conspires;
Stars come out


By my bedside
iPad at the ready;
Verses emerge


Poignant thoughts
Lurking unseen;
Words confront


Airport terminal
Last call booming;
Gateway rush


Sleepy sensations
Limp body crashes;
Dreamy escapades

Elk Walk - The Rancher


                  Elk Walk

           elk walk in snow to
     find a morsel in warm fount
         beyond, fields beacons

                The Rancher

          morning frost twinkles
      while rancher sips coffee and
            whiffs new arrivals

Moon in full bloom
Blue azure tint;
Mystic glow


Wedding banquet
Joyful feasting;
Fiesta echoes


Wine goblets filled
Sparkling champagne;
Customary speech


Table by table
Bride and groom waltz;
Photo snapshot


So many strange faces
Lost in the crowd;
You and I


Here we go round
Cheers and good laughter;
Good spirits flow


Relatives from both sides
Guests in fine dress;
Grand occasion


Time to celebrate
Love in sure season;
May blessings fill


We gather here
Feast with finesse;
Good overflows

Dawn speaks
Hymn of light streams;
Wonder awakes


Listen now
Window ledge songbird;
Sings in prayer


Joy and cheer come
Mingle with zest;
Awakening love


Pulse of new day
Mystic magic plays;
Dewy grass 


Salute in frolic:
Tiger and panther;
Two stray cats


Early awakening
Touch of light streams;
Fragrant dreams


Dawn unleashing
New day dream spills;
Awake into dream


My lover calls
Voice perfumery;
Vibrant echoes


Morning psalm
Earth and sky attest;
Gratitude abides


So many thoughts
Vivid permutations;
Poetic impulse


Words swing
Poetic arches;
Touching heart


Uneasy melody
Writes to cite;
Feelings surge


Touch of crazy
Simply profound;
Muse amused


In one scoop
Ice cream moments;
Tasty dessert

Memory lapses
Random forgetting;
Signs of wisdom


Wayside flowers
Unknown adornments;
Beauty hides well


Flu bout route
Dizzy dazzle drips;
Body aches level


Two teacups
Hot green tea brew;
Poignant fragrance


Empty corridors
Slant of moonlight;
Shadows dance


TV sitcom
Korean drama tells;
Mesmerised audience


This old book
Smell of ancient wood;
Stiff mental foliage


Sidewalk cafe
Eye contact hurls;
Love sculpts passion


Stray cat basking
On moonbeams;
Wailing to enchantment


Old couple strolling
Wrinkled hands holding;
Ancient serenade


Busy feet meet
Intersect at crossroad;
Silence speaks loud

From my porch
Wrap up with extreme-cold weather clothing
The January sun bathes weakly through the early morning grounds
I seek alone by such astonished far-fat mountain-side
When some dared rabbits at burrow doorway gazing
Like a thief at the overheated clouds!

Feel the pulse
Dawn ushers light;
Songbird sermon


Noisy feet detour
Winding footpath;
Suffocates silence


Busy overload
Mobile devices talk;
Choking silence


Dreams evaporate
Working day attire;
Drowsy loitering


Morning temple crowd
Chanting melody;
Incensed offerings


Sleepy eyes gaze
Blurry focus here;
Work day conspires


Blank faces
Crowded lift descends;
Zero contracts


Strange interface
Sea of faces;


Subtle tension
Deliberate silence;
Roaming devices


Office mall complex
Busy feet intersect;
Faces unnoticed


Cold weather presides
Mindful meditation;
Sense finds feeling


Pretty woman
Crowded atmosphere;
Train ride punctuation


Stray conversations
Handy mobile cellphones;
Subway friendly talk time 


Shaggy dog walking
Owner on a leash;
Random fertiliser


Office encounters
Dance of work regime;
Busy distractions


Business verbiage
Action in commotion;
Productivity gains


Sea of faces
Awesome potential;
Lost in a crowd

Sparrow song
Morning cold rain;
Thunder orchestra


Touch of magic
Dawn light streams;
Window pane rainbow


Crystal gemstones
Colours of light;
Precious souvenirs


Heart unfurls

Memories remain


Stillness sums
Quiet surrender;
Walking meditation


Keep fond company
Silence works wonders;
I, me and myself


Know the truth
See the proof;
Act with kindness


In turn, swiftly
Subscription ends;
Seasonal change


Seek a centre
Deep within;
Beyond things


Poise hidden;

Your shadow desserts you;
A void gifts




Come and go
See time set;
Always going away

Bamboo clusters sway
New year breeze hurls;
Tinctures of dawn


Magic moments thrill
Beginnings beckon;
A touch divine


Here in this room
Writes of a sort;
Colour sparks tints


Waiting upon words
Wit fondles pun;
Collect stray fragment


By park detour
Wet wooden benches;
Desolate feel


December died
In January rain;
Sadness wets well


My darling calls
Grocery shopping lists;
So much To-Do


Love wears a face
It's you my love;
My magic moment


Three decades old
You and I journey;
Starry starry night


Morning mystique
Sun on terrace;
Colours at play


Haiku strains
Zen garden charm;
Stillness funds beauty


Star Wars saga
The Force moves;
Good versus Evil


YinYang twist
Round in circles;
Opposites flirt


Jerky notes
Fumbling expressions;
Fleeting gains

We live grandeur
Such lovely times;
Gratitude speaks


Joy greets splendour
Smell of fresh grass;
Sighs delight


Touch of magic
In simple things;
Fabulous sights


Sense a new feel
Floating free;
A voice calling


New year presides
Time and tide align;
Wonder delights


Time for change
To craft new say;
Humbling moments


Joy calls softly
Laughter delights;
Humour shows wit


Listen now
Celebrate joy;
Peace on earth


Green grass verge
Dandelion swaying;
Scented sensations


Tired old lady smiles
Waiting in line;
Cheer tickles face


Touch of stray breeze
Ruffles her hair;
Beauty strokes


New year greetings
So much to say;
Words do not come


Old man sits here
Stares at passing world;
Private thoughts loiter


Playful child runs
Frolic greets glee;
Wonder funds motive


School days
Amazing trips;
Happy adventures


Old friends cluster
Meet to discuss;
Old news, old times


Memory prevails
Loiters in corners;
Mood swings attend


Time loiters with dreams
Broken not forgotten;
New day preaches


Last I dreamt dreams
Awakening I forget;
Fall into a dream

Winsome boy looks
Styles a quick peek;
Then goes to school


In still moments
A touch of joy;
Another year succeeds


Zest in a fest
Breeze sure ease;
Wake joy profound


Brisk as s breeze
Easy strides here;
Active walking moments


Seek to find

Realise the truth


Sly smile curls
Drool of crafty eyes;
Await menu strange


January wet spread
Monsoon winds sway;
Pregnant agenda


Weekday shopping mall
Random strides stray;

Late dinner buy
Takeaway meal packs;
Detour spreads thin


Drowsy eyes droop
Let noon siesta;

Empty corner seat;
Waiting for deep poise 


Why question?
Answers float away;
Classic quotes hint

Punctual as usual;

Prisms on the Shore

a prism dance floor -

under comet sky

glistening ocean -
billowy waves dance freely
engulfing prisms

surging waves seek land -
prisms waltz on the shoreline
in the moonlit tide
