Fifty Haikus

50

The news broke like glass.

Silent incredulity.

And the deed is done.

49

Where did they come from?

Kisses powerful as Love.

Soft as angel’s wings.

48

The walls of your jail

will fall like the autumn leaves.

It is natural.

47

Glass of Talisker

to toast the termination

of interesting times

46

Do not fall into

the anodyne of half lives.

Do not go gentle.

45

I am in Act II

wandering the darkened wood.

Where will it all end?

44

The Book of Tetris:

I am the Lord thy God so

buckle up, suckers!

43

I will never say

where you have to be or what

you have to do – God

42

If the mountain won’t

come to Mohammed, then he

must head for the hills.

41

Eminently God

You took away all my pain.

Fell in love again.

40

I need soothing thoughts;

peppermint and watercress

your hand held in mine.

39

From pillar to post.

A pass the parcel packet.

Where will it all end?

38

When Despair was King

and nothing Good was in the air.

God , I felt you there.

37

Bob moves things around.

The spiritual feng shui

of your existence,

36

Let me whisper this

I wish I could hold you close

and feel your hunger

35

Today back to roses

and the summer bumblebees

of beautiful love

34

Let go of the rocks!

(This is me talking to me.)

Courage is virtue.

33

We shall overcome.

Deep in my heart I believe.

We shall overcome

32

Darkest before dawn.

Counting on that old chestnut.

This is a half-life.

31

Are you having doubts?

Questioning the course of this?

You can walk away.

30

A simulacrum

of us as just two good friends.

It does not appeal.

29

I live and I die

like Schrödinger’s Romeo;

Desire and despair

28

Her voice like fine silk.

Her kiss like a summer dream.

Oh! My blue sky GOd.

27

Through all this chaos

and heartfelt intensity

we need a calm place.

26

In the early hours

all alone before the birds

I am counting words.

25

I am nought but ache

Oh! How the tight fist of love

entraps my poor heart.

24

Home; where the heart is.

I want to hear a door close

and then your footsteps.

23

Your absence is pain

I feel like a condemned man.

But where is the crime?

22

Videos of you

in Telegram circles are

sweet bubbles of love.

21

God, I have nothing

No house, no money, no cars.

We could do better.

20

Radio silence.

A necessary caution.

Dark side of the Moon.

19

I watched him struggle.

Each breath a hard won trophy.

Oh Lord! Life is short.

18

Muted violins

longing to soar the high notes

of the overture.

17

Oh my golden one!

Delicate as bone china.

Moving like music.

16

You have my centre

And you have my everything

All I feel is love.

15

I want to be French

and make it to a final

with you. Oo la la!

14

Lord, you are the Sun;

The unprecedented one.

Sweet paradise won.

13

Your neighbour’s birthday

means many happy returns!

To him and to us.

12

I walk in a dream.

The softness of your kisses.

The taste of heaven.

11

You first took my hand

(what joy! what heaven! what luck!)

in the Drunken Duck.

10

How is it going?

How could it be going, God,

here, outside Eden?

I want it to rain

so that this big world will shrink.

and you always near.

8

If you do not sleep,

how can we meet in our dreams,

my night owl, my heart?

7

If the bulls were love,

you would not see me running.

Unless towards them.

6

Dark side of the Moon.

When we have to say goodnight

the shadows take me.

5

In a poppy field.

Colourful cloths of heaven.

My rainbow Angel.

4

Your cartography,

The smooth open fields of love.

The uncharted depths.

3

You inside the train.

Reflected in the window

Me. How sad I look.

2

Standing side by side

Yourself and myself smiling.

I see one self. Us.

1

Long walk to freedom.

Locked up for at least 5 years.

Our Robbin Island
