Haiku

 

summer sunshine
windows in the city
twinkle

 

 

powder tresses
of acacia blooms
yellow moon

 

 

Moselle valley
leaves unfurl
on the grapevine

 

 

vespers
from the monastery
evening stillness

 

 

cumulus clouds
form castles in the sky
summer noon

 

 

after a downpour
jasmine
scents the twilight

 

 

ancient city
buildings curve
new pavements

 

 

hand motionless
over a box of popcorn
suspense

 

 

silence
thickens the waiting room
the clock stutters

 

 

sunlight
illuminates a slate roof
thunder clouds loom

 

 

coal fires burn
smoking the city skies
pale moon

 

 

dawn chorus
birdsong competes
with his snoring

 

 

jets chalk
a cross in the sky
church bells toll

 

 

summer stroll
my shadow ahead
competes with me

 

 

wet woodland
footprints overlap
on the forest trail
