A Woman's Scent

That night when my mother

I, She And The Sea

Sombre though we were we knew -
For the hearts beneath our skins did throb,
As the surf surged up the sun swept shore
And we lay in repose in gold sands galore -

Haiku On Soul

'So how are you, buddy? '
'Not dead yet...'

        Hails to thee, Lord!

Like a princess she comes
at the appointed hour
floating like a shadow
through the stillness of night

can do it to you. Your driver,doctor
neighbour, neighbourhood shopkeeper
your uncle, your priest, your teacher

but she said a single room could be cheaper
she also felt lonely and needed someone near
