Haiku Ten – Seven

Writing for many
Haiku in social circles
An undying art

Shadows on the screen
Living a nitrate daydream
Moments in darkness

Ruby lips entice
Smiling eyes pluck at heart strings
Beauty is timeless

Weary thoughts ignite
Forgotten memories burn
Dreaming in shadows

Lost in memories
Searching for hope in shadows
A dreamer awakes

Desires become one
And release hidden passions
Silence the darkness

Gentle thoughts caress
Distraction clouds my vision
Reflecting desires

Grey light surrounds me
Shadows fade into the night
Longing for your kiss

Early evening chill
A relentless rain pours down
Prelude to springtime

Not the Ides of March
About ole St Patrick’s Day
Time for a birthday

Chiselled Light

Chiselled light flickers
Smoke mingles with evening fog
Misty tendrils dance
Shadows chase the setting sun
Twilight lingers in silence

Haiku Roundup Number 7

Afternoon delight
Pausing to ponder the day
Lost in emptiness

A voice from the past
Where time and hope converges
Before shadows move

Midsummer longing
Like a leaf upon the wind
Words without a song

Jet trails cross the sky
Sun reflects on metal wings
Returns to reading

Evening drops excite
Succulent petals open
From a gentle kiss

Obsessed misery
Born out of a dark fiction
Released from time’s weight

Wild and overgrown
My garden of broken dreams
Forever in bloom

I passed a mirror
In reflecting I did find
An end to begin


Drowning in your gaze
Grey eyes sparkle with laughter
Moments lost in time

Memories unlocked
From the darkness deep inside
Shadows fear to tread

Unspoken feelings
Reading lips with just one touch
Melodies linger

Bound for my pleasure
Eyes devour, touch excites
Reading a new book

Your evening unfolds
With bright lights and gaiety
Where no shadows fall

Eyes heavy, day’s done
Sleep is but a dream away
Party starts next door

Music off, birds sing
It’s a late morning rising
Day dreaming begins

She’s my addiction
Just one kiss and I am hooked
Can leave anytime

Rain hits my window
With a soft pitter-patter
Tearful melody

The rain has now passed
Clouds hang heavy in the sky
Joyous laughter heard

Escape is freedom
Transported on silent words
Cover to cover

The night remembers
Darkness hums a mournful tune
Cue the morning dew
