Below is a sample of my haiku work and also a link to purchase my first collection of poetry, The Little Book of Haiku, which is a poetry/picture book containing fifty photographs and/or images accompanied by haiku that reflect the tone of the picture.

As I am no longer using the Payloadz site the link that was here has been taken down. I aim to make this book available from another site, shortly, so please bear with me.


dividing line to separate items

Together we wait

Hanging from a precipice

The future beckons


dividing line to separate items

Growling it comes near

The beast that would take my soul

I cannot fight it


dividing line to separate items

The white snow falling

Beyond my window is cold

So monstrously cold


dividing line to separate items

Glinting like jewels

Your eyes shine in the darkness

They move to watch me


dividing line to separate items

It is time to rise

To stand up and be counted

Time to step forward


dividing line to separate items

The darkness within

Yearns to break free of the chains

I wove around it
