The Art of Haiku

Selections from Ukku Spring Haiku 2006
the spring moon
was at my window
in the night
but it has gone
now too
the evening news
regardless green spikes push up
out of dark earth
spring freshness
a naked mannequin
in the ski-shop window
Alison Williams
clear cold blue
all the things I've wanted
but couldn't have
promise of brightness
in a gift of daffodil buds
snow on St David's Day

spring dusk
the neighbour's vacuum cleaning
ends with a sigh
spring sun's warmth
I catalogue a book
of death poems

I'm cataloguing the British Haiku Society Library
a Harley in the car-park, going nowhere
officially spring
the council daffodils
begin to bloom
talk of bouncing back
from adversity
rain turns to hail
spits and spots of rain
the postman brings a ticket
for a summer evening show
cold spring
news of an ex's
