My Haiku Page

Breeze ripples
Boughs bow and sigh
Coolness !
Falling leaves:
a gust of wind showers the ground
gold at my feet
Visitor @ my window
wings folded, hanging upside down
a little bat.
Dec 31st 2007:
sunny & breezy, foliage rustling
in Botanic Gardens
Dec storms:
water down soaking walls
drip, drip, drip

Boom City:
a forest of cranes gouging the earth
scarring my homeland


Jan drizzles:
on the leaves the crystals


Enright's bench:
sits among tall trees and birdsong
on a sunlit knoll



bike ride to the village
amidst raindrops and breeze
the trees raced


Deprung Monastery:
temple bells reverberate on cold crags
all around


In the park
crystals shimmer on the leaves
freshness there


Bike ride to the village
chickens in bamboo coops chug by
to some market


Rejection is
a cat without shelter
in the rain


Boredom is
a long afternoon
in an empty house


Fear is
encountering that figure in the dark
brandishing a knife


Loneliness is
a brown parched leaf
on a pavement


Happiness is
a breeze in the Park
on a hot day


Incoming tide:
a blue soft crepe of folds
rolls landwards


After rains
olive sunbirds on my willows
begin to whistle


Waves on rocks beat
along the shoreline foams splutter
water fountains


SNEC treatment
patients with eyes dilated sit and wait like
patience upon a monument.


40 years on
I finally made my way
to Angkor


Sitting still:
a white crested thrush above and I below
in Kent Ridge Woods


Agony is
lying on the stretcher waiting your turn
to undergo the knife


Lifestyle choice:
an old couple living in an old house
full of old stuff
