in her presence
words stumble
down the stairs
of my tongue
like elephants

in translation
as poems
spill out
from moonlit eyes

Haiku News

One of my poems is on Haiku News today. You can view it by clicking on the link above.

This site is well worth bookmarking, lots of brilliant poems by some of the best short-form writers in the world today. It reflects very well on the editors Dick Whyte & Laurence Stacey (Great work guys!)

ahead of me
on the path
the little boy

a jester
all these years
I've worn
so many smiles
I could not own

in my mind
her words rise
like fish
sending ripples
through another day
