Two haiku style poems

Two Haiku style poems

A POEM BY RYOKAN IS MERELY IRIDESCENT SPLASHES OF COMPASSION

For long hours I struggled to learn his language
Yet, the calligraphy of the haiku
Meant nothing to me

LAGG

(Lagg, in Arran, is a pretty village near to the sea. A chambered cairn has been there for thousands of years.)

As it tumbles over the shoreline at Lagg
No longer confident of its power
A wave senses the humans
As they too rise and fall
