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
