Ten Haiku Poems by Adele Evershed

 



Ten Haiku


spring showers...

I borrow peace

from the raindrops



moving home

the daffodils the same

but different



ice flower

the girl on my class register

no longer here



wild rosemary

dad asks who is in the photo

in his wallet



death moon

they strip the old man

down to his tattoo



red tide

the sound of water

silenced



lilac wine

I find mum's lipstick shade

discontinued



plum blossoms

too many questions

with no answers...



black ice

mum picks red stilettos

to wear at her funeral



bamboo curtain

a boy plays peek-a-boo

with the sun

Six Poems by R. W. Stephens

  Like Extended Haiku       Tango music muted , o pen window    Fading summer light s hadows   C hair on the porch   An empty glass       ...
