Four Haikus outside at Christmas in Yorkshire

Holding arms open

the snow tickles your shoulders

in a cold silence.

Opening the door

boat was frozen in the lake

freezing getting home.

No Ambulances

you long for peace

from the sirens

#NaPoWriMo 2021 - Haiku of Life (1984 and 1985)


We still don’t want you
your class team to said after
scoring twice for them.

before mother said.

the death of her husband, my granddad all...

The sound of laughter

is carried in the soft breeze

a footprint in time.

Dreams play hide-and-seek,

Thoughts trying to catch my sleep
