Torrent of Haiku




Little things matter


Old woman dying
Pain etched face, gentle slow smile
Grandchild holds tea cup.


Swallow in Spring


Declining sun tints
With gold skeletal tree branch.
Swallow seeks Spring nest.

The need and blessing of prayer


Rubbled-over heart.
Give no real power to ruins
Beneath, life throbs, hopes.

Insight


Transcendent glimpse of
Clear beauty. Sunny upland
Within and without



The Rivulet


Tumbling fresh, crystal 
Clear, ice cold over rounded
Rocks. Spring stream runs home.

Autumn Tints


Colour of dead leaves
Faded browns, russets. Twilight.
Lost youth moonlight bathed

Sacred Heart


Heart of Jesus may
I abide within you. Dwell 
In your sweet abode 

Restless Heart


Immaculate Heart
Of Mary, be you within 
Me. Seat of Wisdom






Gulls cry


Smiling sun, biting
Wind. Kittiwake calling out.
Light spangled ocean.



Early Riser


Combing the little
Ones tangled hair. Sun laughing 
At window. Spring dawn.

Brief Lives


Cherry blossoming, 
Brief, frail, sun nurtured beauty- 
Lamb rests in shadow

Spring Blossom


Branches new laden
With blossom quiver, soft breeze.
Sweet scent tumbles free.

Easter Story


Spring frost slays new buds.
Hidden seeds, untouched, grow on.
Bright flowers bring joy.

Consuming Fire


Jesus, Saviour, Light
Of life. Mary's Son, God's Son
With light consume me.

Cosmos


Bejewelled night sky
Cold comfort, distant beauty.
Winter stream shines pale.
