Haiku: Japanese poetry

the working week starts
sonorous sounds of keyboards
pervade the silence

the flight of the bird
soaring high in the blue sky
above earth, below

black mare with her foul
mother’s milk upon its lips
morning dew underfoot

taillights up ahead
red, signal for all to stop
movement turns to still

the tails are wagging
four dogs meeting and greeting
one brown and three black

dew upon the grass
horses wake from their slumber
the grey sky oversees

aroma of coffee
Starbucks on Saturday morn
hot Latte to go


About Sean

I live in my own thoughts, chat to imaginary friends, and survive primarily on Snickers and Nescafe. I work full-time and study part-time for a BA in English Literature with the OU. Home is the North West of England, and my heroes are those authors that can make miracles out of paper and words…… “The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” – Mark Twain.
