Haiku on Example/ Fall/ Loss/ Delicate


Only sample left
Used it as an example
For next edition

Paper aeroplane
Example did not help me
Need a new flight plan

Know I'm different
Happen to like Nordic jazz
For an example

Examples happen
Ethnic and racial tensions


Neath Kakadu falls
Bodies drenched, our minds open
Sun horizon low

Outside door open
Step unexpectedly low
Nice trip, nasty fall

Faithful low-rise jeans
Zipper now stuck on open
Sad fall into bin


Sad loss of grande dame
Best not to talk about it
Yet she gave so much

She came from nowhere
Grew up in real poverty
One of London's best

Few will know her name
Yet revered by family
The best of mothers


Haiku poetry
Delicate, evocative
Best exact, not short

A shortbread biscuit
Sweet, delicate butter taste
Best crunch in the mouth

She’s on the short side
Delicate features and limbs
Best person I’ve met
