Haiku on Trade/ Alarm/ Ghost-Surface


Wise experience
Now willing to do a trade
For youthful vigour

Trade in Ivory
Wealthy New World collector
An elephant dies

The trade winds of change
Strangers from across the world
Enrich our culture


The alarm went off
Sound again another day
Go away today

Smoke alarm shrilling
Oh God, the house is on fire
No, just the toaster

One more false alarm
We want you to be pregnant
Two days late again


Slight recognition
Ghost of a smile surfaces
I'm sure I know you

The poor ghost writer
Never really knows the truth
Scratches the surface

Just ghosting through life
Love no more than surface deep
Borderline person
