No beauty this storm,

Bahamian ripsody,

Shredding the sweet earth.

I write to keep the brain in me alive, to keep one step ahead of the bailiff of time.

This haiku is part of our theme of Disintegrate.


Love

18 November, 2019

I wait in the dark;

Did I dream your waning love?

Do you see my blood?

I write to keep the brain in me alive, to keep one step ahead of the bailiff of time.

Fall Sunset

1 November, 2019

The sun departed,

Sank beyond the Beaufort Hills;

The last of my sight.

Escape

3 April, 2019

In a flash of wings,

A liaison of magic,

The butterfly flees.

I live in my head, and pray the landlord won’t evict me.  Enjoy more of Bill’s work at Engleson.

Inside of her womb,
I hear the fisher’s laughter,
sense the brisk west wind.

Bill Engleson says of himself, “I was conceived at sea, suckled for the year at sea, and I dream of water, always.”

I loved this haiku from the first round. Is the writer talking about the sea itself being a womb or is he talking about a woman who has been impregnated by a sea god?
This haiku is part of my OCEAN series.

I await the end,
My breath, blood, bones, brittle skin,
scattered on the earth.

Bill Engleson says, “I am a writer who plays with language and who yearns for language to have its way with me.”

I liked the layers of meanings my mind kept coming up with when I read this haiku.

In the candlelight,
ancient love tells its tale;
the old leaf crumbles.

” I write fiction, non-fiction, poetry and letters to the editor. I play with words and frequently they play with me.” You can read more of Bill’s work at Engleson.
I enjoyed the mystery of this haiku and the remembrances of love made me wonder…
This haiku is part of my LEAF series.
