Brevity:

A chiffchaff singing –  In two perfect notes I hear, His whole life story.

Timeless:

A field of cowslips, Among the ancient ant hills- Wild thyme standing still.

Illusion:

A bee buzzes in, Flies straight into the glass pane –  Tricked by the senses.

Impermanence:

Nest-box on the ground, A confused blue tit searches –  His beak filled with straws.

Energy:

Greener by the day, Woods and hedgerows re-birthing –  Sapling in concrete.

Last moves:

White-painted slug trails, Like lines drawn at a crime scene –  Lead to the victim. Or… with a proper kigo…. White – painted slug trails, Like lines drawn at a crime scene – Warm sun the killer.

Freedom:

Wood anemones, Dance beneath the trees, still bare –  Their green skirts swaying.

Eagerness:

Early rape flowers, Seem to have blossomed  too soon –  Two swallows fly by.

Offerings:

Hair falls to the floor, Soft lining for a bird’s nest –  Shedding winter’s grey.

Wantonness:

Men tear at the hedge, Dereliction of duty –  With cats on the prowl.
