Here in Vancouver
Where the crows perch on streetlights
Nature meets city

In a ravine park
I find a silent corner
To jot down haiku

The traffic drones on
Birds chirp as the sun beats down
Leaves sway in the wind

Gently flowing stream
Into a tunnel you flow
From sun to darkness

Sometimes to go low
As water filling a creek
Is the modest way

Treeroots, sticks and mud
A path leads to the old stump
At the ravine`s heart

In the shaded creek
A duck is still and napping
The water flows by


On the Coast

talk about buying boots
and then end up
hiking barefoot

Wake up
to the ocean
and sun
on the Sunshine Coast

Big black ants
crawl over
dead wood logs

A local girl
is here
with a small dog
for some reason
we don`t talk
an understanding of peace

A heron calls

A wasp
hovers over
the ashes
of last night`s fire
I never noticed
how much
their wings displace

The girl
and her dog
silently leave

I watch ants
crawl over

Peace River

Posted: November 25, 2014 in peace

drinking warm red wine by the Seine river,
warm fall
friday afternoon
the wind gently blows dead leaves down the river bank
I sit under a train bridge
its pillars covered in grafitti
the taste of Black Cellar’s shiraz in my mouth
the sound of leaves falling, rustling
the sun reflects on the river like a shimmering gold and silver carpet
in the distance the murmurs of the city
children playing
hidden away from the chaos
a much needed moment of peace
