Haikus: Exerpt #4 from: Hook, Line & Haiku

Breaching the surface
largemouth jumps up to see if...
It can hold its breath.


The pregnant fishes
lounge upon the riverbed
waiting to give birth.


Dancing smallmouth bass
pirouettes around boat
looking for handouts.


Learning never ends!
For even the fish will stay...
Forever in school.


Protective coating:
Slimy perspective to us;
Life saving to them.

Haikus: Exerpt #3 from: Hook, Line & Haiku

Hasta la pasta?
Annoying filament knots
of spaghetti spools.


The squeals of delight
flow from all fishing children
with uncontained joy.


Sounds of spinning spools
always brings me much comfort,
for I'm not at work.


Floating down the stream?
Not a dream, after dropping...
A bag of bobbers.


In early morning
anxious fish are awaiting
the autumn school bells.

Haikus: Exerpt #2 from: Hook, Line & Haiku

Lures, flies and spinners
provide variety for
multiple techniques.


Casting carefree lines
the sportsmen and women look...
For fishy hook-ups.


Moonlight over pines -
Adds a touch of elegance
to nighttime fishing.


Daytime sea trollers
combine leisure travel
and hands-free fishing.


The ignorant fish -
Unaware of keepers of...
Life's aquarium.

Haikus: Exerpt #1 from: Hook, Line & Haiku

Cool flowing waters
cater me with plenty of...
Aquatic playmates.

 

Smallmouth and largemouth -
Either kind acceptable,
if they are landed.

 

Get them in the boat!
Fishing stories without proof
are just plain-faced lies.

 

Imitating bugs?
Fishing is an art form of...
Posing as insects.

 

The splashing fishes
are vying for attention
during school's recess.

Freedom Sky (Haiku)

 

A bird soared freely

Above the sunflower fields

Until the gun fired

WANDSWORTH WUFFIAN

Five years and nine months

Can you tell what it is yet?

It's not long enough

 

So whilst on 'A' Wing

Bend down to pick up your soap

Whilst in the shower

 

No 'Two Little Boys'

Just 'Jake the Peg's middle leg

Summary justice

 

A didgery-doo

Try your Kangaroo court sport

It's coming to you

 

Then why no remorse?

Banged up at portrait's pleasure

T'hell with Haikus

Practice missed perfect.
Fat lady forgot to sing.
Doctor caught the flu.

Writers are rebels.
They forever cross the line.
T'hell with haikus.

This is poetry.
Not exactly an exam.
Simply a word fest.

Seven syllables
Neatly sandwiched between five?
Great, my pen can rest.

Passchendaele (Autumn 1917)

entry picture

Passchendaele (Autumn 1917)

Blind, wide open, eyes.
Dripping poppy petal tears.
Crimson rivers flow.

Fields transformed to mud.
Deep cut trenches scar the earth.
Wounds that will not heal.

Gas clouds drift from hell.
Death exhaled in fetid breath.
Lost boys fall like flies.

Ghosts haunt no mans land
searching for their bitter souls
in butchered bodies.

Finding empty shells,
...

Framed

entry picture

 

Snap shot narratives

consumed and represented;

sights for story eyes.

 

Imprint augmented

in minted vermilion,

reposing in gold.

 

Rubied reflection,

framing her identity;

remains of her day.

 

Painting Cupid blind,

exposing expectations;

binary ideals.

 

Bruised aspirations,

extinguished and abandoned,

bleed in solitude.

 

Sna...
