MEDITATIONS ON NATURE



I have been writing Haiku whilst in hospital, taking my mind back to nature. Here are a selection of both Spanish and English nature haiku. 


rest by sacred Oak
soul eased by tree energy
at home in green woods


velvet night, silence
cloaks village, jabali roam,
root buried almonds


eagle loops earthward
casts wingspan on roof terrace
soars to dot in sky


stalking hunter pads
blood oozes on virgin snow
cat licks crimson paw


in stillness spot red
robins hop, blue tits hover,
coal blackbirds squabble


golondrinas swoop
in mudspit caves under eaves,
hungry heads peak out


garden birds flutter
to hedgerows, wiry squirrel,
brush curled, raids the nuts


creep along marsh dyke
snow feathered egrets arise
cloud fans aqua sky


marsh egret escapes
black reed sticks hop the shore line
saffron feet dance the waves


salt flats shimmer pink
flamingos strut, loop bowed necks
jet dipped bills sift shrimp


dream in restless sleep
skimming wave froth hazed in gold,
mind freed on sea breeze.
