Three Memoir Haiku

Living with addiction

Waiting for ever
outside a pub -
Dad is booking his bets




Masons Avenue, Hamilton

Green enamel gas oven
tick-tocking Grandfather clock -
our grandparents' house




Out of the blue

A new home
with Aunty Jo -
State House, Papatoetoe.



The title says it all. Visit Tuesday Poem for more great poetry.

  1. I like "out of the blue" -- I can 'see' the State House in Papatoetoe. :)

  2. yeah great stuff - i like the way dad is after bets not booze - but because a haiku implies so much - maybe booze as well
