Twelve Haiku Poems by Julie Ann Thomason

 



Haiku The day

 

Dawn


New day genesis

Luminescent mist shrouds

horizon hints light


 

Sunrise


Weak winter sun

Painted pallid blush

painted whispering sky


 

Morning


space before noon

optimism opportunities

Hours to love work play


 

Afternoon


Picnic in park

Butterflies bees dance

Vibrant panoply of petals


 

Evening


Lovers hands slip together

End of day fascination

seduction melting mystery


 

Golden hour


gloaming glints dips

hued hills striped sky slithers

magic moment manifests



Haiku The Night

 

Blue Hour


Licking shadows

Periwinkle whispers

Last lingering light


 

Twilight


final fluttering rays

daydreams dim

crepuscular chimera


 

Sunset


Burnished butter gently

Slips highlighting horizon

Nocturnal lives stir


 

21 Dusk


shades shapes shadows

penumbra coverage

welcomes witching hour


 

Midnight


Speckled sepia sky

Scented with belladonna

New date begins


 

Dead of night


still silent cobalt blanket

Shrouds cities countryside

Sea shore hills homes




Julie Ann Thomason -  Has been composing poetry for over 30 years. Her poems normally begin with a phrase or sentence in her head that she likes the feel of.  She explores feelings, reactions to people, places, things, and events.

Julie studied English Lit at university and taught EFL in Spain. Initially for a nine-months, she fell in love with the country, living there for twenty-three years.  Fluent in Spanish, Julie composes in and translate into both languages. Translating began by giving Spanish friends, the opportunity to read her work.  It proved to be fascinating and instructive; she saw new meanings, better words, nudged nuances, through the prism of a different language.  

Julie became heavily involved with Primary English as a foreign language, which lead to her first publications textbooks in primary EFL

She performs poetry at spoken word events. If a piece of work is well received, she posts it on her blog.  During lockdown she worked on her writing and had her first poems published in 2020.   In 2022 Julie published her first poetry collection “The Possibility of Pebbles” poems inspired by the Japanese Tea Ceremony.

Julie was Scottish chair for WGGB 2010 – 2016.
