A Twitter of Haiku


in the still of night

the sound of pen on paper

bouncing ideas


surrounded by walls

the all pervading silence

no one here but me


on the weeping gum

a boastful crow sits and caws

the black and white cat


by the laundry door

weeds growing in abundance

absence of green thumbs


without any care

blithely stomping through puddles

end of the rainbow


through the window pane

a single ray of sunlight

dust motes dance on pins


as sunset beckons

a deepening of shadows

haunting cry of birds


give a little time

to doing nothing at all

drift along in dreams


my mind writes

goes walking through syllables

counting all the way


across the night sky

my fingers walk in tandem

trail of twinkling stars


gorging at the trough

they do not see the poison

ingested with pride


their anger makes me shrink inside myself until I do not exist


loneliness descends

leaving icy comet trails

bypassing the heart


at nearly midnight

sudden flap of wings outside

gaps in the moonlight
