Haiku
 

 

 

Chen-ou Liu, CA

 

two sparrows
the temple steps lit
by the spring sun

 

 

spring breeze
through the maple tree
mom's lullaby

 

 

a girl in black
draws a heart in the sand
waves rolling in and out...

 

 

her parting words
floating on a lotus leaf
spring dewdrops

 

 

the bride hides
her pricked finger:
blood stained sheets

 

 

her plane to Japan
leaves the long white trail
a drifting leaf

 

 

first day of class
a kite dream drifting
out the window

 

 

jump rope's spinning ring
one by one red leaves
falling in

 

 

divided
by the wall of snow
two barking pugs

 

 

a bat banging
against the attic window
Eric, my name now
