September 2009 haiku
 
Sept 2
airplane

plates of light, changing
row upon row, travelers
dislodged, still as stones

Sept 3
Raghly

smell of sea, two dogs
guide us to thick grass, loud cows
building full of holes
 
Sept 4
Raghly

wind like jet engines
shakes tree limbs, ruffles puddles
blows seagulls off course
 
Sept 4
Streedagh Beach

rocks as big as heads
wind as big as giants’ breath
three glad dogs running

Sept 5
Cloonagh Beach (in memory of Dick Olney)

"hold this land you love
with the soft hands of your eyes,"
he said, with me still
 
Sept 6
Raghly

black-faced, deep-eyed cow
comes to fence, considers me;
I take his picture
 
Sept 7
Carrowmore

stone tables on tombs
three young cows in stone circle
munching, trying sex
 
Sept 8
Raghly

grasslands send out light
having earlier stored it
for just this moment
 
Sept 9
Knocknarea

what eyes have watched this
centuries past; the high tomb
the green shrouded hill
 
Standhill Beach, Voya

lay down in seaweed
serpents’ home, placental source,
limp leaves, soft fingers
