Poetry


Haiku

Gilles Fabre



The pregnant cat


The pregnant cat,
more careful than ever,
crossing the road




First full moon of the year


First full moon of the year -
and it's trapped
in a bare tree!




Phone ringing inside…


Phone ringing inside…
If I move, gone will be
this spring butterfly




After Mass


After Mass
the priest kneels again
to lock the church door




Putting winter blankets


Putting winter blankets
back in the press
I disturb a spider




His shirt inside out


His shirt inside out,
the old man
searches for change




A perfect bookmark


A perfect bookmark
if it was longer
this grey hair of mine




One last look at it


One last look at it
and the gardener
cuts the rose




Christmas wrapping papers


Christmas wrapping papers
burning in the fire -
New Year's Day




Cherry blossoms


Cherry blossoms
all over the pavement, the road;
here comes the sweeper




W COME TO VERMONT


W    COME TO VERMONT
on the border sign
a farmer's coat




Pub's round toilet window


Pub's round toilet window
just big enough -
summer full moon
