Guest Poet #1 – Myron Lysenko

My first guest blogger to take up the invitation to post their wares is poet Myron Lysenko
His entry is from the National Haiku Writing Month, which is exactly that: write a haiku every day for a month.


April 1:


from her garden
she watches hot air balloons –
pregnant woman


2.4.11


facebook status –
the pregnant woman jokes
her baby has arrived


3.4.11


home recording
of songs for my daughter –
the birds join in


4.4.11


nuclear power
the cockroach also
moves away


5.4.11


a cobweb
under the old shed roof
a wind chime




6.4.11


morning dew –
she tells me her waters
have broken


her waters
have broken –
she washes dishes




7.4.11


the machine
measures her contractions –
she wants her mummy




8.4.11


hand-picked flowers
the ladybird crawls along
a hospital bed




9.4.11


rain on the roof
the baby suckles
a wet nipple




10.4.11


bookshop –
I knock over “The Road
to Inner Peace”


11.4.11


city bookshop –
always kneeling
for poetry




12.4.2011


the baby looks up
at her two huge worlds –
wet night


13.4.11:


see through roof –
light from the clouds
before sleep




14.4:


setting sun
at the end of the branch
yellow leaves




15.4:


a baby
looks at the light –
white cat




the mother’s
leaking breast –
bag of nappies


16.4:


her first
outing in a pram –
she sleeps through it




17.4:


welcome mat –
rain comes through
the open door




18.4:


full moon –
the baby feels for a breast
on her father’s neck


19.4:


just a little
bit of wind –
first smile


20.4:


modern art
on the bedroom walls
coffee stains




21.4:


morning sun –
mother and baby asleep
side by side


22.4:


a baby cries –
the mother’s full breast
starts to leak


23.4:


baby blue eyes –
she makes bubbles
in the bath


breast feeding –
she delights in the details
of a perfect ear


24.4:
expressed milk
the father feeds
his daughter


25.4:


Anzac Day –
fog at the end
of the road


the baby makes
funny faces as she wakes –
Anzac Day


26.4:


playground –
a baby in the pram moves
in her sleep


27.4:


the baby squints
at a bright blue sky –
tree dahlia


28.4:


the sun
bursts through clouds –
we change her nappy


even when the infant cries – post natal bliss


29.4:


a mother
eats chocolate eggs –
baby’s first pimples




30.4:


I change
the baby’s full nappy –
royal wedding
