My Haiku Year 2012 #4 April / May

1st April   Green grow the grasses oh..

Sharpening blades cutting grass

Humphling things about  

How to tidy a garden

2nd April   Poetry please

Lord Tennyson and John Keats  

Bell’s Wee McGreegor  

Reading treats for my mother

4th April   From the train

North across the Forth Valley  

Deep clefts in steep braes  

Snow brilliant on the Ochils


5th April   Twits on Twitter

One hundred and thirty six

Tweets waiting for me

Quickly I skim through them all

 joan and sue

7th April   Sue and life

Sue came round to eat with us  

She is inspiring  

Watched the Voice and laughed in life


13th April  Locked in the back room

All week SQH marking  

Thick portfolios

 Improving education

14th April   Bliss was it then (part two)..

Early Saturday morning.

Bright sun on the Forth  

Egg roll, coffee, Guardian. Bliss.

Sun, black stormy clouds, and rain  

A typical day

In our beautiful Scotland

Brain kicking back in
