Haiku II

These three haiku-like poems were inspired by a wonderful afternoon that Peanut, a friend of mine and I spent in the magical world of the National Museum of Scotland


Grouchy camel sneers

You and me – the weight of a chimpanzee

 Your hand comforts a rock



  Chinese dragon snores

  Whirlwind spin – dizzy head

  Lion’s ready to roar

d3Gossip and friend and tea

Long gone knights and kings and queens

Noon – the Millennium Clock chinks
