a sunrise; morning -
elixir of life, sunshine:
blazing energy.


a small seed growing,
between millions; unsought -

for Adcock, a haiku tutorial

dawn's distant bird song -
a young sun's blush, naive cheek;
she mends breaking days.

the spring breeze is cool -
soft caress of unseen touch;
your eyes feed the soul.

from within

a few, to many;
soft sixth sense spoken loudly -
listen: flowing words.

The home stretch

nearing journey's end;
our fortitude, undaunted -
the triumph awaits


precious life; given -
one chance, taken for granted:
dangerous living.

dew to steam to rain --
water permeates the all;
slakes the thirst of dust

haiku by Elzet Mostert and Mr Mönnig

distant streams beckon
crystal-clear water, flowing
troubles washed away

we all run from truths -
hiding in shades of shadow,
lost for a moment.

for a friend

darkness twirls inside,
a soul deep; lost in evil -
each one shall be saved.

drug of life

high on oxygen -
blood through veins; a breath taken,

internal search

young heart wandering,
searching answers: time frozen -
lost in the madness.

silver lining

bloom of a flower,
colours intertwine: beauty -
silver-lined cloud found.

glory after death

hidden talent found,
only to be frowned upon;
glorified by death.

our dark souls

two bodies; one mind,
souls linked by insanity -
force against the world.

distant sunlit seas,
shimmers of new life beckon;
tides give, take - and spawn.

"First name is Free, last name is Dom"

the rustling papers,
Light at the tunnel's end -
approaching freedom

dreaded anxiety

The darkness seeps in -
malicious absence of light,
how I dread this place.
Down this road before, 
Got lost beneath the skylight 
Searching for answers... 

Lightning struck her heart 

Awakened by dreadful past;

And her silent scream. 

Spring, sprung

news of distant storms,
herald of the seasons' change:
we, life, rise from sleep.

Lies of humankind;

To comfort a young girl's dreams,

While tussled by life
