Wet Saturday Haiku

Set no alarm

to lie in Saturday

space for the mind

to wander.

 

She said her mind

was like a bag of weasels

I wish I’d

thought of that.

 

I had not seen that

the cat has

one rogue whisker

above her left eye.

 

The apple tree

is pixilated

by rain running

down the window pane.

 

Is this, then the present?

Rain is so ‘now’

you said to me,

well, it’s ‘here’.

 

Just because you

have seventeen

syllables

doesn’t mean

you’re a haiku.

    Soggy city day
    unseen summer pigeons fly
    I hear their high “coo”

    Summer long ago
    Langa Farm near Campbeltown
    Milking time: Hi, coo.

    Trouble in Nepal
    Maoists in the government
    That’s a real high coup.
