Wind’s rush and sea’s roar

Are broken by the skitter

Of a kicked pebble.

Over seaweed fronds

And rivulets in the sand

A shadow hand plays

Bobtails, swallow’s breast,

Old man’s beard frosts the trees –

A white autumn.

Eight in a row

Cormorants and gulls

Stalemate

The pier’s old dome
Rebuilt in a passing cloud –
Starlings flock

A dry leaf
Rustling along behind me
Autumn approaches

I caught you
Flipping through my notebook
Impudent breeze

Longest day

Wildflowers in the shingle

Scent of broom.

Linked to Carpe Diem Summer solstice

The thatcher’s brown dog

Curled up in leftover straw

Bundle of bristles.

Spring is fading –

Against the tumbledown house

Wisteria weeps.

For Carpe Diem:  a carpet of purple

And here are the two haiku I wrote for the Carpe Diem kukai back in March before the wisteria came into bloom here in the UK.

Bare and twisted,

Amid crowds of crocuses,

Wisteria waits.

~~~

March wisteria –

On old, twisted branches hangs

Anticipation.
