Haiku

 

jumping to conclusions—
                                          a grasshopper
                                                                       impaled on barbed wire

 

 

a solitary traveler—
pale moon
in a black pond

 

 

last day at the beach—
a school of minnows
darts in unison

 

 

gold in the hills—
Sierra Madre
last light

 

 

sparkling dewdrops—
one by one
the stars

 

 

alone tonight—
the stillness
between stars

 

 

woodland path
a rabbit’s footprints
suddenly stop

 

 

tidal pool
the heron and I
shift to a new leg

 

 

swimming—
against the current
a load of clouds

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
to the top
