Haiku – View

#1 – Pessimist
Walking the old beat.
Promised never to return.
Age shifts your viewpoint.

#2 – Optimist
The view from the bridge,
Youth’s promise refined by age,
Rewards the walker.

Haiku – Milk & Smooth

#1
Often overlooked,
The milk of human kindness
Smoothes out life’s furrows

#2
Milk of the poppy,
Smooth, soft, anaesthetising,
My velvet cocoon

#3
White Russians:
Like a hand grenade
Wrapped in silk

#4
Cream rises always
To the top of the carton
Ascent isn’t smooth

#5
Flawless, milky skin
Round eyes, soft lips, tender heart…
And legs she killed for

Haiku – From Bad to Worse

No empty comforts;
Her wicked lies in my head
Melting my resolve

The space she has left…
Home comforts melt into air
As I head for sin.

Within her black heart,
Only evil. No comfort.
Her mind void of good.
