At the Bus-stop

I remember your straggly hair
unfashionable clothes
painful pale thinness
world weary air
persistent cough
your daily struggle to find change.

I remember the day you were no longer there.

Turn the Page

On page fourteen, an exploded plane –
Pilot error in overcrowded sky
Leads to fear and terror,
Many die.

On page fifteen, don’t miss the special offer –

Cheap flights to Spain

Flight for Writers Island

earlier this week I posted a haiku about flight over on Crafty Green Poet, you can read it here.

silently at the table -
mist on distant hills
