Lamb (Five haiku)

Once a boy was hatched.

Born with sonnet wings most heaven-sent –

Eased into planting.


Appalled by the world’s-stage.

Tooth – radar splitting the hunt

Courage is exposed.


Brilliant inner sea –

His cry glides across the moon.

This mother-tongue comforts me.


Ghost of a vision.

Every finger a stem –

Leaves antiques, tears sap.


Winter’s-bone – a party’s birthday-balloon

Summoning earth’s ripening –

Blades of pleasant grass.
