Life, passing

in the distance, leaves --
the lonely wind seeks kinship;
a rustling sadness.

Haiku by Riaan van Zyl [2015]

Haiku by Riaan van Zyl [2015]

As autumn leaves fall
So does my last breath come forth
My eyes close, light comes

Haiku by Chris-Mari Lombaard

Haiku by Chris-Mari Lombaard

Aerial streams flow
Carressing the bare landscape
Soft, as his lost touch

Haiku by Peyton Wessels

Shaken leaves, the wind – 
Is this how we say goodbye
Breaking and falling

Haiku by Peyton Wessels

The trees, they change so
As the four seasons go by
So do you, my love 

Haiku by Peyton Wessels

The moon is my light
Walking down this dark pathway
How did this happen?

late afternoon sun:
day's end, lazy shadows bask,
inviting shy dusk.

sunlit stone garden:
only pebble shadows grow,
fleeting permanence.

Frail existence

yellow, orange, white
roses pursuing sunlight;
blooming fragile life

Malicious delicious

our dry, croaking throats --
once a symphony of sounds;
now, screaming malice.

Shades of Truth

doubt the rising sun,
proven wrong by light of day -
then the moon takes lead.

In the process

wet loops of ink dry,
embedding thoughts on paper:
wit becomes wisdom.

unfolding flower,
seeking sunlight; energise -
receive beauty: give.


waves crash against sand;
creatures from within escape,
only to face death.

Our wonder

Forgotten countries

The seed to untold mysteries

And our wanderlust

When the heavens called

Winds blew her star dust away 

For she shines no more

Seasonal affective order

Spring sun brings the thaw
Dawn's thin skies, robust at dusk
In blooms, blush of health.

Slowly spiralling down
Hydrating the dry cracked earth
a gift of new life
Boredom: enfold me
in merciless iron claws
Strangle me with grey
