Haiku – River & Stone

Stones on river bed
Oblivious to surface
Frothing sturm und drang

Haiku – View

#1 – Pessimist
Walking the old beat.
Promised never to return.
Age shifts your viewpoint.

#2 – Optimist
The view from the bridge,
Youth’s promise refined by age,
Rewards the walker.

Haiku – Milk & Smooth

Often overlooked,
The milk of human kindness
Smoothes out life’s furrows

Milk of the poppy,
Smooth, soft, anaesthetising,
My velvet cocoon

White Russians:
Like a hand grenade
Wrapped in silk

Cream rises always
To the top of the carton
Ascent isn’t smooth

Flawless, milky skin
Round eyes, soft lips, tender heart…
And legs she killed for
