Drops of rain water soak
Into the sponge like furry boot shoes
Drenched like a wet dog

The shoes that are not made from leather linger in my mind. Thereby produces the above haiku. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
Days to grow a bunch of hair
But it only takes
A day to have a bald head

Thinking if my son’s hair is gone, his round head will look much rounder. This makes me laugh to myself and births out this poetry. This haiku (in progress) has been sitting for more than two weeks. I have been reading and referred to it again in order to connect it well. Wish you all have good days.
Vast sparkly waves of ocean
As the sun shines onto the ocean
Vastness of ocean increases more
Final beautiful sight in mind
Gradually sink into the bottom ocean seabed
Eyelids close, sealing own fate
Blur sight of a swimmer
Before losing consciousness in the ocean depth
Everyone flashes back in memories
Awaking to the soothing music
Among two smiling patients on hospital beds
Hopes re-live in his heart
A man dressed in white
Listens to poured out woes and pats
When other patients go outdoor
Encourages her to be strong
Sowing a strength to own beloved friend
In times of tumultuous life
Seeds of love and care
Gradually buds forth in her broken heart
Living filled with hope again

This image had been appearing in my friend’s mind to part III so I expressed it in haiku and continues it.
Being in his dad’s carry
Outstretch his body to hug me closely
We swiftly carefully leaving lift
A cute sweet baby boy
Hugging me wishing warmth from my hug
Reminiscing infanthood in my embrace
His dad holds him strongly
He clings onto my neck grappling strongly
Looking like train track line

Adults tend to express pain
With words but children express pain in
Tears automatically but is effective

Among the empty rolls cubicles
There lies only one full roll cubicle
Seeking relentlessly and found one

Before I bought groceries, I entered into the toilet. None of the cubicles have a tissue roll. Persistently, I looked around and found one roll of tissue. So I was reminded of finding a needle in the haystack.
Cloudy grey sky drizzles gently
The five birds are on a flight
In a search for shelter
Inspiration On: Thursday, 23 May 2013 at 6:40pm to 7:15pm
It was evening for me to go for a little exercise. Drizzling caught me and I was attracted to the flying birds’ chirp in the sky. Therefore, it began with, “birds on a flight”. Upon reaching home, the other surroundings are captured in words.
Its circle mouth squirts inks
A black ink of liquid to fool
It escapes to protect itself.
Making a circle rounded mouth
Two fingers press cheeks to squirt water
Just for fun and play.
Octopus squirts and toddler squirts
One squirts black liquid, one squirts water
Either enemy’s face or washbasins.

I know the right word for the title is supposed to be ‘Baby Octopus’, but I choose the other way is to explain how octopus squirts and how a toddler squirts. The above stated event at the second paragraph happened during brushing teeth session. My helper and I had a good laugh at that sight. The third paragraph is the comparison between each squirt target.
In the visual artists’ vocabulary
Image is a language in their minds
To produce tangible visual artworks.
Visual people remember events through
Pictures, photos, mental snapshots through the eyes
Into the brain’s memory banks.

“Visual language” came to my mind when I want to express the above haiku. Slowly, the right words flowed out as I revised it the second time.
Observing and living on earth
There are two types of people’s judgements
Either criticizes others or self.
