Haiku

 

growing twilight...
against the setting sun
a dog lifts leg

 

 

empty cathedral—
in the growing twilight
organ's breath

 

 

morning walk—
the spirit of the wild grasses
rides my dog

 

 

for seconds
among bugs and butterflies
a flying dog

 

 

walk in the hills—
after a sudden shower
the dog's tail recurls

 

 

Miss Mongrel
hiding her nose under her tail
under the Christmas tree

 

 

Miss Mongrel
even stealing, she does it
gracefully
