The day after (haiku)

by Jem Croucher

3 of 3 (1 the day before, 2 yesterday)

And after all that
a long walk in winter sun
to dust off cobwebs

amidst the grey cloud

Tri-Haiku XXXVIII (Friday)

by Jem Croucher
And so to Friday
for a switch-off come lunchtime
into the weekend

And breathe deep, relax
soak up the fact that this is
deliciously mine

And so it will be
to use wisely and enjoy
pending the new week

Tri-haiku XXXVI (Warmth of weekends)

by Jem Croucher
The warmth of weekends
cosy from winter blankets
bodes well to the week

So with high spirits
Monday comes with gusto here
cocooned I embrace

And the warm embers
envelope and protect me
as the week proceeds

Tri-haiku XXXV (the sun, hooray)

by Jem Croucher
And here for Sunday
the sun still has its hat on
Hip, hip, hip hooray

Golden for autumn
it still shines yellow and warm
Hip, hip, hip hooray

Shining still brightly
it stays and it continues
Hip, hip, hip hooray

The only blue planet, soon going to be barren

The greens we see, tomorrow will disappear

Warmth increasing day by day swallowing the life.
