Haiku on the page

Here’s a selection of some of my haiku that I have been fortunate enough to see published over the last year or so in Blithe Spirit (Journal of the British Haiku Society).

try to describe love
as summer flowers –

valley lost in cloud
rain falls steady all morning
drips glisten on twigs

dry leaves crack
under silent skies
empty wires, too quiet

in the middle of
an open field
the only shadow

summer meadow
deep and tall under
scythe of swift

walk to the beach
on a spring afternoon
my shadow goes first

and one from a recent edition of Haiku Journal

misty air whispers
in a forest full of dreams
                love breathes through trees
