Haiku: Sunsplashed

The sun has come out. I’m whispering this in case it hears me and pops back in again.  It’s very temperamental and only makes fleeting appearances.  To celebrate it’s return to the dark North of England, I wrote this:-



Greetings this morning

Buttery stuttery sun!

Touching us with life.


Your golden smile shines

In unblinking cloudless skies

Waking our spirits


Dwarfed by your presence

Golden shimmering fingers

Wash us with their touch


Life’s light glows vivid

A grand illumination

Regal and truthful


Great and shadowless

Your light, miasma’s echo

Stands in silhouette.
