Sunday After Noon Haiku

Written after noon,

and. complete before midnight,

these words must suffice.

.

But, if they do not,

then please write in and complain –

your words ‘do’ matter.

A Sunday Haiku – short and sweet

Yet another day,

and this one is called Sunday –

it has its moments.

Rainy Day Sunday Haikus

“Can you hear the rain?

It’s falling like share prices

after a buy-out!”

.

“Sorry, it’s like what?”

..

“It is like the aftermath

of a takeover.”

.

“Or it’s just rainfall”

.

“You could say that it’s just that;

but I tend not to.”

.

“I can see you don’t –

which makes these Haiku boring;

not funny at all.”

.

“Well, they might not be

quite to everyone’s taste,

but I like them… lots!”

..

“They do go on… lots!

Perhaps you should now desist..”

.

“Stop!”

.

“Yes, please.”

.

“Okay.”

Sunday Haiku

“Is it Sunday? Yes?

How? Where has the weekend gone?

Is it Monday, yet?”

Sunday, not a poetry day?

I tried to write a poem,

something, anything;

but, nothing could I write;

so, I went for a walk instead,

to consider the nothingness

in my head.

The Bells of St. Lalluwy (2020) – and a look back at ‘The Bells of St. Lalluwy (2019).

Sunday morning,

10:30 a.m.

and I can hear the bells,

thr bells of St. Lalluwy,

as their sound chimes

across the fields

that lay between us.

Unseen church,

I hear your call,

“Come to pray,

come one come all;

or just listen to my pealing sound

and pray at home;

for, there, I am also to be found.

‘The Bells of St. Lalluwy (2019)’

I can hear the bells of Menheniot

ringing out for prayer;

across the fields I hear the knells,

and, soon, I won’t be there.

I can hear the bells of Menheni

a-ringing in my ears;

they call the flock from off the land

to seek comfort for their fears.

I can hear the bells of Menhen

appealing all to come;

the faithful and the sinning soul,

the sentient and numb.

I can hear the bells of Men

though softer than before,

until at last,

the peals have passed,

and I hear the bells no more.

Sunday Haiku

A Sunday Haiku

is only for a Sunday

and not for Christmas.

If that makes some sense

go to the foot of your stairs

and whistle the wind.

Sunday calls for a…

Sunday calls for a…

Haiku, or a dearth of them –

how do I decide?

Please comment on this

If you want some more Haiku;

be silent, if less.

J On a Sunday Morning

There are many things that you can do

on a Sunday Morning

that begin with the letter J.

Joust, jump, jaywalk,

launch Javelins skywards

towards the Jorvik centre in York;

jog, jellify, jig,

or just joyously

jive.

It’s great to be jalive.

Juice (on a Sunday?)

How can I rejoice,

when I have never even joiced?

Did I have a choice

that I missed

and never made?

Did I fail

to make the grade?

And, if not mine,

at whose door can the fault be laid?

How can I rejoice,

when I’ve never even joiced?
