spilled might
tip the balance
of so many things –
dripped into the vast
lake, of channelled
insecurity, insincerity
and remorse.
Just one.

its lapsed presence lies 
spread eagle – flat upon the floor
becoming pooled

Check out the Penumbra blog – rich in the art and essence of Haiku.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

  1. This is gorgeous Anita ❤ I love the parallel between form and content. There are so many themes tackled in very few words. It makes your art all the more powerful.
