Water Haiku

drops of life

sustained universe



two-thirds of the whole

pure quencher

Gentle rain

dead Earth re-birthing

Gift from God

Written for Haiku Heights. Love their chalenge…30 Haikai in 30 days…not sure I can do it! How about you?


Red Tape and other sticky matters

Reluctantly I wake to

another day

the same as yesterday.

Gray and expectant.

No anticipated e-mail

or message…snail mail?


Can snails hurry?

I wonder…

They have just two paces


or still.

They don’t move in straight lines either.

And the more you prod them

the deeper they retreat.

Then nothing happens.

Anticipation and expectation

breed such sweet slow brewed anger.


apologies,  delays

another postponement,

red tape

and other sticky matters…


I race to strike the keys

that cypher my frustration.

Blast. Send. Extinguish.


Back to the tedium, of waiting

I yawn

and rub  my eyes

Dulled by my own disillusionment.


Feigning relaxation

I put up my feet

seeking sleep…

an escape

from the exhaustion of more waiting.



Inspired by the prompts of Three Word Wednesday (dull, yawn, race), the tardiness of the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the poor services of Gulf Visa.
