Southern Christmas - senryu and haiku - Peter Macrow

Southern Christmas
senryu and haiku

her Christmas red top
work makes her wear
'I'm here' she says it says

a man holds the seat
for his boy
wobbling his Christmas bike

neighbour's barbecue
guess who got a trumpet
for Christmas?

New Year's Eve a cabbage moth
crosses the lawn
ahead of its shadow

New Year's Day the first
dandelion daisy
in freshly cut grass

January 7th
a Christmas balloon
still in the tree

tincture - stuart barnes


our prickly pear’s
eleven copper
suns have expired.
bellies of Rainbow
parrots flare against
a Henson sky like
matches. fireworks
ridicule horizons. a
stray cat blackens.
