Haikus

In the garden


The rooks giggle and laugh
uplifted, dancing,
while wind caresses the oaks.


(this seems to be inside out  7-5-7 – it should be 5-7-5), let’s try again!)


Rooks giggle and laugh,
uplifted, squabbling, dancing,
while wind breathes on oaks.



Two sides of Love


When you hesitate
to answer if you love me,
I know it's too late.


In the afternoon heat

a lolly in the freezer

left by you for me.



I am old and now

All there is to be knowing

Except wiseness of youth


Old now,  I know now

All there is to be knowing,

Sad my youth is spent.


I am old, knowing

All there is to be knowing,

All my wisdom spent.
