Haiku on Sing/ Ready/ Rest/ Ever


Sing an ode to love
Together in harmony
Never ending song

Old 'Frere Jacques'
Round and round we sing the round
Laughing, out of breath

The universe sings
Cacophony in E flat
Like a squeaky wheel


Just one of those kings
Ethelred the Unready
Never got it right

Few moments ago
Felt ready to face the day
Now I'm not so sure

Birds chasing about
Squabbles for territory
Nearly Spring ready


Bullied for some months
He took on the pack leader
The rest ran away

Moment at low tide
Whole world seems to be at rest
Not one small ripple

He chose carefully
Knowing he needed her love
The rest of his life


We're family for ever
On Ancestry dot

Eyes in the shadows
Ever feel you're being watched?
Marked on performance

Love you for ever
How many times is that said?
Again and again
