Homeless Junkie sits 

huddled in a damp blanket

for him no CHRISTMAS !


His children are still

asleep ~ while their Father ~ brushed

the snow off his car !


A hot Summer night

turn my pillow to cool side

and dream of ANGELA !


So this is Spring ~ Birds

singing ~ Lambs gambolling ~ so

why are YOU so SAD ?


How can one small Tree

produce enough Autumn leaves

to fill three black bags ?


Thanks for visiting ~ please chose your favourite ~

mine is No. 3 ! Comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN XOX


All these HAIKU are related to the  Four Seasons which

is one of the criteria for a classical Haiku. Also an English

Haiku has to follow the 5 7 5 syllable pattern for Rhythm.

    Great homage to the seasons Brian.


      Thanks Michael ~ The beauty og HAIKU is one can make statement on JUST 17 syllables ! Thanks BRIAN

      Caro Amico BRIAN!
      I like all five! Of course,
      number three would be
      your favorite! My favorite is
      number four!
      Favorite word in number
      I can see them frolicking
      about! What a beautiful
      sight! Great write with a
      perfect illustration!
      I appreciate your
      explanatory notes at the
      end of your poems! Grazie!
      Saluti ed Abbracci...

        GRAZIE LAURA ~ CARA AMICA ~ De certo numero tre per mio ! Yes I liked No. 4 For me SPRING is wonderful and watching new born Lambs "gambolling" convinces me there is a GOD ! But of course many are still SAD even though Winter has gone ! Ma grazie a Dio siamo felici ! Baci e Abbracci ~ BRIAN ~ Uomo sempre felico ! XOXOX

        Great Haiku for the seasons. The first one was sad. So I liked no. 4! Spring is so hopeful! I should try my hand at some Haiku-. Nice job! Sisterly hugs-Christina

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          THANKS PRECIOUS ~ I love every Season and for ME & YOU every Season is Happy but also tinged with sadness ~ c'est la vie ! YES number 4 ~ birds & lambs etc do make us rejoice ~ but there is still some sadness in the World ! Haiku are easy and many that are published (in English) do not adhere to the 5 7 5 pattern ~ but publish anyway ~ I wouldn't spank you for that ! BUT I would HUG you in the SPIRIT ! Brother Brian @@@@@@@

          A fine write Brian. Now I had an idea that the swooniest one might be your favourite! heehee.

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thank you STEVE
            I always swoon & spoon
            On CHRISTMAS Eve
            So blow up a BALLOON
            It's never too soon
            To SWOON !

            Yours BRIAN

            • orchidee

              Oohh swoon and spoon. Don't tell me what's going on with the balloon. I might never recover! lol.

            • myself and me

              Soon the holiday season will be here, with the happy song everywhere, while thinking of those struggle with life, it hurts.
              Nice poem.

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                HI M & M ~ Life is never a level playing field ~ BUT if we have been blessed in 2017 ~ Christmas is always the perfect place to share ! Christmas Hugs ~ BRIAN

              • Tony36

                Love them all. Great write

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks TONY ~ pleased I scored a full house with you ! Yours BRIAN

              • Fay Slimm.

                All the five appealed to me Brian but I have to admit number three gave me an insight into who those hot summer nights invite into your dreams. Lovely tribute to all the seasons my friend.

                • BRIAN & ANGELA

                  Thanks FAY ~ I know you always enjoy attempts at Japanese Style poetry ! In JAPANESE of course there is an added factor of the WRITTEN (painted) symbols ! The same is true of BULGARIAN ~ RUSSIAN etc. You know that when you find your TRUE LOVE ~ they are the ONE that fills your DREAMS ~ Yours as ever BRIAN

                • lasergraph

                  I enjoyed the write. I have often wondered how one tree can make so many leaves.

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    Thanks LG ~ One of my students asked me that so I gave her the problem to solve ! Her conclusion was: An Oak Tree (for instance) has about 30 layers of leaves as you go up the tree ~ When the leaves fall there is only one layer (plane) the ground ! So technically if they all fell vertically the pile of leaves would be 30 leaves deep ! But because they are blown by the wind they cover a greater area ~ but under and around the tree they can be 10+ leaves deep ! Yours BRIAN

                  • Shadowbox15

                    Buenas Noches Brian. Yo me gusta el haiku de invierno.
                    I like the plot twist at the end.

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    GRACIAS AMIGO ~ L'INVIERNO is a great Season for HAIKU ! My friend in IOWA brushed a foot of snow off his car before he went to bed. When he woke up to go to work ~ there was 2 feet ~ He now lives in Tampa Florida ! Hasta la Vista ~ BRIAN
