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?

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

BAMBOO MOMENTS



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

~~~~~~~~~


Minimalist
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

~~~~~~~~~

LADY LUCK





                    Luck was his that night

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

ECLIPSE



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

AWARENESS



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

~~~~~~~~~

JOURNEY HAIKU



JOURNEY HAIKU #1

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

THE SETTLED MORNING

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!

VENTURE




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;
Out-of-place

~~~~~~~~~


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

JANUARY HAIKU



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

~~~~~~~~~

ATTITUDE



Words on rice paper
Profound thoughts wander;
Ponder find ink

~~~~~~~~~


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
Feelings preside;
Unceremoniously

~~~~~~~~~


One by one
Death carts away;
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

~~~~~~~~~


Hide-and-Seek
Poise hidden;
Agenda lurks

~~~~~~~~~


Watch closely now
Your shadow desserts you;
A void gifts

~~~~~~~~~


Magnitude
Attitude;
Gratitude

~~~~~~~~~


Come and go
See time set;
Always going away

LOVELY TIMES



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

~~~~~~~~~

HAIKU ZEST



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
What seems lost;
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;
Another Sale 

~~~~~~~~~


Late dinner buy
Takeaway meal packs;
Detour spreads thin

~~~~~~~~~


Drowsy eyes droop
Let noon siesta;
Dreamy delicacy

~~~~~~~~~


Sense haiku zest
Empty corner seat;
Waiting for deep poise 

~~~~~~~~~


Why question?
Answers float away;
Classic quotes hint

~~~~~~~~~


Bills arrive
Punctual as usual;
Pay as you go
