Haiku: Neighbour Beats Us Again - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

late November
neighbour beats us again
in dusting the Christmas tree

inspired by:

late November...
I miss another visit
to the nursing home
Charles Trumbull

slender moon
her new gait
after slimming down

inspired by;

slender moon —
locking the door
for the last time
Timothy Hawkes

Pearl Harbour Day
a Sept 11 now to mitigate
America's greatest war foible

inspired by

Pearl Harbor Day
the back yard fence steams
in the morning sun
Lane Parker

christmas
the wish to rewrite
the old songs

inspired by

every one
of her Xmas cookies
the same snowflake
Scott Metz
