Haiku

Written 09/10/2008.

Shadow going past –

Moving silently on paws –

Hunt glinting in eye.

Face slowly opens

To the warmth of sun in sky.

And perfume pours out.

Soft patter of blood

Falls gently on the side street,

Echoing the rain.

The sock monster strikes

As I take the washing out.

Why only one sock?

Humanity grows,

With the way we all behave

Towards the needy.

Soft spring rain falls down

And washes out the winter.

New life begins now.

Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick,

Goes the clock as time goes by,

Tock, tick, tock, tick – stop!

Silently spinning

Tender trap for flies and bugs –

Nature’s own cleaner.

Silent shadows fall
where sunbeams gather the quiet
of the evening
