Tri-Haiku XVII (awakening)

by Jem Croucher

In this quiet time
before the morning arrives
Slumber fades away

And awakening
with my coffee freshly ground
a fragrance pervades

with birdsong chorus
on the cusp of a brand new day
The blue sky greets me

Tri-haiku XVI (sparkles)

by Jem Croucher

Doors flung wide open
the outside comes inside now
with fragrance of Spring

The stranger visits
looking for a place to sit
Anywhere will do

And its radiance
paints everything golden here
Sparkles all over

Tri-Haiku XIV (Spring)

by Jem Croucher

Spring speaks of yellow
as sunshine comes to the fore
and life awakens

Spirea whiteness
as April sunshine returns
A nod to winter

In grass freshly mown
Here is the fragrance of Spring
and we are alive

Tri-haiku X (tears)

by Jem Croucher

To open your eyes
as bright sparkles sting and fall
It’s ok to cry

Embrace my sorrow
But then tomorrow bring smiles
that I may see joy

As sometimes a tear
will fall from my eyes with joy
as something moves me

by Jem Croucher

Behind winter’s veil
the brittle chill sent shivers
and I felt the cold

Behind winter’s veil
I dressed up warm to the chill
with best foot forward

Behind winter’s veil
I felt the warm of the sun
for a brief moment
