  1.     

Winter Haiku

Haiku 1

Summer is so short

A white skirt left on the beach

Winter is so long



Haiku 2


The ice flowers on

the window pane. A flute plays

and the rising moon



Haiku 3


The seagull on its

perch pole above the water

Naked we slowly enter




Haiku 4


The small whales leap and

dive in the sound. The sauna

sweat on our bodies




Haiku 5


Long the shore the ice

cracks in the ferry`s wake. The

moon slides on darkness



Haiku 6


New Year - so many

rockets scream next day - old year΄s

rubbish fills the streets

  2.     

A Very Personal History

Bodies have histories

Eyes lie to one another

Even in mirrors

But history remains dug

Deep into every cell

Bodies strain to forget themselves

To join in dances too young for them

But the music of the song

Is in the piano notes of the genes

And we endlessly respond

Endlessly play the game,

And dance the dance,

Biology and memory conspiring

To deny themselves

Through each other
 
Tommy Stroller
   
 

   
   
 

  3.     

You tiptoed away in the night

Long ago
Your arms encircled the void
Inside me

In the still desert
That was my heart
You planted yellow roses
And watered them every day

My nose
- so bloodied from blindly
tearing around in my darkened room
bumping against furniture
and walls:
the unseen limits
to my imagined world -
You rubbed so gently
and kissed away the pain

You loosened me from the rack
Of my deceits
and half untruths
Untied me from the table
of my flattened universe

You sat constant
in the sickroom of no hopes
When the doctors
Had given me up
as mad
and gone

In the void where once your arms encircled
In the desert of yellow roses
In the dark room of torn spaces
By the rack of my unprovoked lies
In the sickroom of my patient madness
There is now no-one

You tiptoed away in the night

And I?
Yes I have given you up to the stars
So you can maybe alter mine
Then hopefully your own
 
Tommy Stroller
   
 

   
   
 

  4.     

Little Farms

We are like strangers living here

As if from distant planets flung

Falling separately to little farms

Where contact tentatively

Is made

Eventually

Cross fields & border hedges

The outstretched arms

Reach blindly for the tips

Of fingers searching back
