Ten Haikus

I

Elizabeth sings
Even when she is alone.
God is listening!

II

There is a softness
All around a mother’s love,
Like a cloud’s caress.

III

Look into my eyes!
Drink deeply of Love’s fountain!
Why are you laughing?

IV

To love and be loved,
To be happy with my best –
These are all I need.

V

Do you remember
When the one you loved the most
Swept you up! – Then out!

VI

Some midnight artists
Left their shiny handiwork
All along the walk.

VII

Try to comprehend
Eternity without time –
Endless present tense!

VIII

Great thundering waves
Attack a rocky shoreline.
They will win in time.

IX

I think about death
While lying on my mattress.
Will I play Hopeful?

X

I’ve got a headache.
It must be haikuitis
Invading my brain!
