A decade old now,

Those Blackthorn whips I planted.

Hope will come with Spring.

Hold them tightly to your chest

And feel the aching

Dethronement Haiku

Nothing did I swear.

Silence never so golden.

Kept my own counsell.

3 x more haiku about Change

Leaving you behind
your words fall between the lines
distant memories.

*

The past is a dream
rolling backwards before then
pushing us forward. 

*

Dreams of the past flow,
Backward rolling streams of thought,
Driving us ahead.

Three Haiku on Change

Faded migration 
The deserted church is closed
Disappeared slowly

*

Made up friendships
faded now, their story told
leaving your childhood

*

The passing of time 
the world moves on every day
losing memories

3 x haikus about Lost Socks

(I)

Found in my drawer
A reminder of lost love,
Worn and full of holes.

(II)

Forgotten and worn,
A sock without its pair mourns,
Like love that is gone.

(III)

Drawer now empty 
that once held both of our socks,
Now holds only dust.

Haiku in Bloom 2023 Parts 1 and 2


(I)

Spaced in the silence
birds land on top of the trees
welcoming spring back

(II)

Opening the gate; 
The grass is already moist.
Spring is here early.

Snowdrops 俳句

Imperceptibly,

Snowdrops nudging their way up.

Almost the New Moon.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The text I've used in my post is called Old English Script.

I used photoshop to produce the text and images.

The purpose of calligraphic art is not primarily legibility, but artistic expression.

I've imitated the traditional form of Japanese Haiku.

For example: https://en.wi...

Global Warming Haiku 37

old piano keys;
crumbling in our fingers. 
coastline vanishes.

The Siberian Tiger

 

Hushed black foot pad sinks,

Submerged beneath crisp deep snow

White pugmarks remain



 

Siberia no Tora 


 

burakku futto paddo shinku,

 fukai yukinoshita ni shimu nda, 

shiroi pagu maku ga zan tte i masu.
