"A Walk Around The Fields Of My Mind"




Haiku

Tires swish on wet roads
No smell of the earth drinking
Missing the woodlands
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

She rubs against me
Like an affectionate cat
Half a ton of bovine love
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some years
The blackthorn blossom
Lies like snow
Upon the branch
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hawthorn blossom
Seldom heard
Over the sound of casting clouts
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gathering
Sticky buds in the grave yard
Balm of Gilead
~~~~~~~~~~~

A Vixen's love song
Is not a thing of beauty
'Cept to a dog fox
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The smell of sweet sap
Rising from the saw's sharp blade
Next winter's firewood
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sitting underneath
A flowering cherry tree
Basho fills my mind
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sea breezes jangle
The wind chimes made of sea shells
In the life guard’s hut
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Winter ploughing
With a great long white kite tail
Of following seagulls
~~~~~~~~~~~~

A shepherd's reward
After days and nights of toil
Spring lambs
~~~~~~~~~~

Beach combing was so
Much nicer in early days
Before the plastic bottle
