Upon a Tractor, Beneath a Tree

Upon a tractor, beneath a tree

Comes an elvish melody

That shakes the heart and rattles bone

Whilst up, up there hoary clouds moan;

Droplets of why and how, yes and no

Sing as the dancing elder winds blow

To the beat of a heart, ho hum,

Fresh ideas a thundering drum

And golden throats mellifluous rise,

Closing in with Life’s surprise.


Five Haikus

Haiku I

Hanging by starlight,

Evanescence breath–dwindling shapes,

Foggy creation.


Haiku II

The deer graze alone

Until a branch snaps above,

Fading hooves below.


Haiku III

Life sets with the sun,

Darkness spews unfettered truth

Onto a blank page.


Haiku IV

Effulgent, an apple,

Pure red on the seller’s cart,

Young eyes stare, hungry.


Haiku V

Crunching merrily,

Coloured leaves under crisp feet,

Young lovers embrace.
