Best Poem of Maureen Pickford

Haiku (Three Snapshots)

Rainbow

Sunshine peeps through rain;
jewelled arc hangs in the air,
a crown overhead.

Debut

First butterfly flits
out of a blue April sky
air-kissed by sunlight.

Shower

Clouds wring out their rain,
birdbath overflows again,
wren bobs up refreshed.

Read the full of Haiku (Three Snapshots)

African Boy

No rain. A drought. And now two years have passed.
Three days desperate trek to save their souls.
They arrive exhausted by their long haul
And queue at camp with humanity's mass.

Now, set free from his mother's hold he gasps
As precious, sunlit, jewel-like droplets fall,
Poured into the makeshift, clenched plastic bowl.
Life giving water, his thirst quenched at last!
