Longer Haiku

Rage is so useless

anger impotent divine

in its purity.

Stark its clarity

white and black no shades of grey

set it aside. Now.

Some more Haiku

Autumn

Golden leaves shower

down to be swept in gutters

dark. Sleep my child. Sleep.

Rain

Dust and rain embrace;

sing hallelujah and praise

your Gods. We are saved.

Black cat (Haiku)

Haiku is a Japanese poetic form which follows the rule of  3 phrases of 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively. It is a great exercise in tight writing. Here is my haiku to my cat (not that he would take any notice, of course):

Coal black fur relax;

Jade eyes stare at worlds between

here and there. Show me.
