Daily Moments Feb 9/16 – Time (troiku)



alone on a park bench
for time to change

in sweet sorrow,
time is so slow

life’s pure joy
moving too fast

She looked beside her on the bench beside where her feline friend was falling asleep all comfy in her bed.  Just as she raised her phone to show off her friend, it was as if she had antennae…

respect is key
feline courtesy when asleep,
do not disturb!

She resumed her reading and glanced now and then, envious of her little friend who had drifted back so easily to another world…

dazed and confused
catnap’s treasured dreams
three blind mice

Daily Moments _ Jan 22 – Winters spent (troiku)

winters spent
making fun outdoors,
taste anew indoors

winters spent
under the first full moon
skating on the lake

making fun outdoors
skiing and tobogganing
giant snow angels

taste anew indoors
Saki by the fire
savouring Basho

Haiku Horizons “spend”

city reality (daily moments Jan 10/16 haiku)

shiny streets
wet from rain in midwinter
real slick

city streets at night
shiny from rain
palls real solitude

chasing snow parks
refusing to believe
winter rain is real

church steps oblige
safe shelter for homeless man
staging real life

Daily Moments Jan 9 2016 – Haiku Horizons “Real”

finding comfort (haiku)

after months at sea
docking home at last
finds his true love

ragoût et tourtière
souvenirs de ma grand-mère
bien-être retrouvé

saisie par l’arôme
cannelle et chaussons aux pommes
souvenirs de son passé

scents cast memories
apple pie and cinnamon
found from her past

Haiku Horizons “find”

how time flies (haibun – daily moments 15/12/30)

Such weakness of body pulled her down throughout the day; she tried to read to no avail; writing a line or two would have been a paramount success but with feeble mind the words were lost in a fog;  she completely lost track of time.

cruising in sleep
around the clock and then some,
sailing through time

Daily Moments – December 30 2015

still raining (troiku – daily moments)

Troiku is a new haiku form created by Chèvrefeuille, my haiku mentor at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai


let down by the rain
four days `til Christmas
still hoping for snow

let down by the rain
grey clouds of dismay
shadow blue Monday

four days `til Christmas
four more chocolate delights
kids’ advent calendar

still hoping for snow
downy white coverlet
covers Mother Earth
