"Forever Young" a tanka


When first I saw you
T'was fifty nine years ago
So long I've loved you

But I see in my mind's eye
You are still forever young

"A Hungry Jackdaw" haiku


A hungry jackdaw
More welcome than he can guess
Visits my backyard

"The Year of the Ox" a tanka



The year of the ox
Bought me laughter, love and loss
So I took up arms



In the year of the tiger
Fifty seven long years ago

"Dreaming II" a tanka


You lie beside me
But only when I'm dreaming
Your soft sweet kisses

Still caressing in my sleep
But where are you when I wake?
