Collection Of Six Haikus - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

waking in the night
the swarm of insects
still mad at the light bulb

it has rained enough
between the clouds
luminuous lights

winter rain
on my warm jacket
the trip to the sento

the leeks
such fair ladies
from the slums

the sea darkens
the waves look
so much heavier

ill on a journey
the only longed for destination
is now home
