Gwilo haikus in a street caf

In this place where East meets West
Hard work becomes delight
The sky is lifted.

........

Their chatter is like music, born
From raw excitement,So
I breathe a fresher air.

........

No poison clouds her eyes,
Enigmatic stillness,
Deep, questioning pools.

........

Alone in human rivers,
They flow all around me
Like clear deep water.

........

The fish is still, and watchful.
In depths of placid joy
The fisherman waits.

........

I wonder where my special
Comfort will be found here.
Waiting feeds the mind.

........

This breeze has ne'er swept my face,
These streets know not my tread.
Me! Alone! And strange!

........

The mighty will be toppled,
The weak will find fresh might.
This is heaven's way!

........

Alone is thirst, all empty.
But fullness soon arrives!
So drink, and be refreshed.

........

FOR MY DEAR FRIEND GED:

All I know is hope, that you
Will see your sunny day.
New life, fed by tears.
