"Storm" (haiku)




I called her Lady
She woke a Storm in my heart
Before she went home

Copyright © Res Burman 12 May 2018
I had a lost dog called Storm come and spend some time with me yesterday, until we could locate her owner. She was lovely, beautifully behaved, and as gentle as a lamb.
I shall miss her

Stone Lantern (haiku)



Stone lantern waiting
For someone to light the lamp
To guide pilgrims home

Pilgrim Soul (Tanka)



The evening sun's warm
Upon my face after toil
As I take my ease

Pilgrim Soul.... not in bamboo
But a granite town house step

Spring (Haiku)



Tender shoots of spring
Unfolding to the sun's warmth
Hope springs eternal

Tree Shadows (Haiku)



When the sun is high
The trees sketch their images
On the ground below

On the step licking my ear
Hail Old Soul... Well met

"Paddy" haiku





I wonder
Is fifty five years too long
To miss you
