Lai

Proof

A castle serene
Surrounded by green
And lake
A beautiful scene
Fit for king and queen
I’ll take
Pictures to be seen
To show where I’ve been
No fake

kyrielle PA Another Blank



Last fall we went to Hawaii.

Experience was so sublime.
And I did not expect to get
another trip of a lifetime.

But here we go planning again.
Some may believe it is a crime
to plan to have so much fun on


We’re headed for the Emerald Isle.
And parts of Scotland, we will climb.
And when we’re done, I’m sure we’ll plan
another trip of a lifetime.

Callanish Stones

The stones of Callanish, on Lewis Isle
Appear as wise old men guarding a tomb
Yes, they’ve been standing guard for quite a while
Near five millennia through rain and gloom
Nobody knows who lies there in earth’s womb
But many hike these Scottish lands to stare
At how the monoliths were placed with care
And babies become old and then they die
And these old guards continue on in prayer
Leaving generations to ponder why

The Falls of Dochart, Killin, Scotland

In spate, the falls flow full and fast.
They tumble over large flat rocks.
They’re more like rapids some observe.
Their noise impresses passersby.

It’s nature’s best in one long blast.
When water’s low we take off socks.
We snap some pictures of it all.
And walk so slow, at least we try.

The narrow road, the stony bridge,
The ancient mill, the hills and trees,
The row of old white houses there,
They all combine to glorify.

We’re glad we stopped as we went past,
Which we’ll relive in future talks.

Triolet


Like Enoch

I can imagine meeting You there,
On a starry night on a lonely Scottish moor.
We’d commune intimately in prayer.
I can imagine meeting You there.
Like You with Enoch, we’d share.
Then walk through Heaven’s door.
I can imagine meeting You there
On a starry night on a lonely Scottish moor.

Scotland

Above cliffs
Seabirds fly
Into mist

Gray castle
Clouds hover
Loch mirrors

Snug inlet
Old boats bob
Hotels serve

haiku


Wind and stinging sleet
Makes you glad to be inside
Wishing for sunshine
