Cream Delight

Hello from Moncton, New Brunswick
Cream Delight.
Insouciant blush
Betrays a secret within
I love you madly

Autumns Arrival

Yellow maple leaf
With traces of springtime green
Lain in quiet shade

On Hiatus

Hello Friends,

I will be traveling through the Maritimes of Canada for the next two weeks. If possible I will post to this blog. Whether I do or not, the haikuing will continue.

The Pancake Rocks

Pastel morning sky
I rest on ancient sandstone
Crumbling to the sea

Punting at Mona Vale

Come sit in the punt
I will take you for a ride
I speak Venetian

Patterns of Nature

Elephant wrinkles
In Mammoth tusk, hide and eye
Crafted in the wood

Home for a Gnome 1

If we are lucky
As we walk among mushrooms
We’ll spy a spider

Chicago Peace

In splendor I come
Bringing delight to the eye

Aroma to nose

Christchurch Art Gallery

Walls of mirrored glass
Reflect the ominous sky
Reveal warmth within

Keas 1

Prepare for takeoff
Come watch the blur of my wings

Fly to blue yonder

Fox River

The Sphinx of the sea
Rises to pounce on the vain
Where’s the rest of me

Ship Creek

At the quiet pool
The driftwood all come to play
Tag you’re it, Woody

Pale rose, fill all my senses
You are love to me

Under Arm Problem?

My mottled green coat
Hides colorful underwear

Not very modest

Cast Up

Wake up everyone
Time for morning exercise
Stretch those knotted limbs

Evening

Sky in pastel peach
Though evening tide has gone out
The colour remains

Cast Ashore

The corpse of a tree
We will wait on forensics
To know cause of death

Ingrid Bergman

Ingrid Bergman.
Oh, Ingrid, my love
Come out from behind the screen
Your place is on stage

Rippled Sand

When this gets thrust up
Like those mountains back yonder
Will our footprints stay?

Driftwood haven

Westcoast beaches, NZ (37)

The sea has gathered
A heap of jumbled driftwood
Bones of the forest

A Misty Sea

Westcoast beaches, NZ (20)

Like pages in books
History writ in sandstone
Misty sea cares not

Bring your nose to me

And I will fill you with love
That is what I do

Cape Foulwind 4

Westcoast beaches, NZ (16)

On the pristine beach
I leave many a footprint
Time washes away

West Coast Dunes

Will you walk with me
Walk the boards across the dunes
Side by side as one

Colours of Nature

Westcoast beaches, NZ (34)

Some lonely driftwood
Parked upon the pebbled beach
Harkens back to forest
