curse a cheating lover
cry over chopped onions

oil slick on silent river
a shimmer of rainbows.

seedy and redfaced
strawberries and drunks.

indelible ink
upon her arm
her first husband

river’s rhythmic flow
sinuous across the land—
snake’s effortless glide

dark-suited gather
pay last respects with earth
filling the emptiness

umbrella leaves
fan the shade and light—
her dancer hands

cloud shadows
sweep across park
leaves scatter

windy day
kite-surfers fly
goshawk hovers

doves coo
a duet

rain on pool surface
plucking
water up

the cat wanting out
his last stroll
in the garden

promise
the apple’s golden aura
hides a worm

resurrection
in a forgotten graveyard
antique roses

slicing away
every tidbit of fat
the editor’s pen

geisha
in a willow green kimono
luna moth

whirlpool spirals
life’s wheel turns
a cormorant gulps

John McMullan

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

bitter wind
farmgate opens
dandelions close

orange sale
only ten boxes left
navel-gazing

flame tree flowers
just long enough to write
a haiku

dull winter day
wattle tree in bloom—
sunshine
