Circle Dancers

they dance and sway
in colourful dresses –
flowers in the breeze

Three haiku

I stop sneezing
the same day the sun returns –
has winter gone?


my black cat 
called Moon Goddess
lies in bright sun


bare trees
after the windstorm
empty sky

Linked to The Tuesday Platform at 'imaginary garden with real toads'

Winter Sun haiku /senryu

winter sun
my cat stretches
one long paw


winter sun
frangipani leaves
through the blind


winter sun
thinking of a walk
I fall asleep

Wet weather haiku

rainy weekend
my cat curls all day
on the couch

streets awash –
between downpours
faint bird-song

Written for Project 366, where I am a guest this month.

This Photo

This photo shows, only to me, 
my wind chimes' mellow notes; 
kids whistling, calling each other; 
the flurry of a sudden bird;
the damp smell of the rain.

Wet day,
the rain persistent.

I pull out my small black folding
brolly – but
the switch to open and shut it
detaches, drops, vanishes.

Wet day.
