girlhood, politics

getting her hair done
highlighted liberation
another prison

xiv (2020)

prose may tie you down
build a labyrinth of sense –
sit still silently

A. H / K. H-H (18th May 2020)


is all reading love
all writing too – search for it
– my heart catches fire

A. H / K. H-H (7th May 2020)

Peace Lily – haiku

Peace Lily’s flowers
outreach leaves to radiate —
atmosphere of joy

A. H / K. H-H (4th May 2020)

Poetry – a haiku

your honey bee path
hive entranced waggle-dance
bee friends may follow

Acer – a haiku

the red emperor’s time
came and went – he mourned himself
a blood red carpet

my student rag – Haiku

slowly i’ve discovered
it’s dangerous to read History
conflicts hide so much

after seeing The Colour of Pomegranates

pomegranate blood
transfuses soul without speech
bird song sown to flight

types of poetry?
is that idea insanity?
does a net catch breath?

fast in the tree of hello

fool of fools, awkward,
in love with all, dumb-stuck fast
in the tree of hello

A. H/ K. H-H (12th January 2020)

cold autumn morning

cold autumn morning
clearing true from dirty snow
late flake frozen thaw

K. H-H / A. H (28th November 2019)

Power’s M.O.

Inquisition v2

in their countless ways
they’ll try to provoke you
bait your devil’s tongue

A. H / K. H-H (14th & 16th November 2019)

what comes of posting such process – and for once I processed a bit more and imaged up (or would it be down for that third line?)


in their countless ways
they will try to provoke you
get you to respond

K. H-H / A. H (14th November 2019)

on a theme from Munch

suddenly intense
the gardens’ scream of beauty
tortured by our scythes

A. H / K. H-H (Thursday 4th July 2019)

is modern life just

is modern life just
the entrapment of innocence
still winds blow, clouds dress

A. H / K. H-H (17th November 2018 and 28th June 2019)

Pale Light


pale light east blind white
fresh daybreak laid untrodden
awakens past life

Cairn, 2019: I Fished For A Word

a repost by link from the last year celebrating my first anniversary or regular posts – one of my haiku linked to from this post

I Fished For A Word

i fished for a word
to set my world in order
stopped still, heard water

(c) A. H / K. H (-H) (April 2018)

Sometimes a Circle

sometimes a circle
culture impersonates culture
hungry emptiness

A. H / K. H-H (11 January 2018)
