Haiku Collection


The steps lead upwards
through trees and shrubs
I can’t see beyond

 


 

Sun sets over the
vineyard
Sky intoxicates like wine

 


 

The yellow balloon
lands softly in a field of
sunflowers, joining them

 


 

I long to see a
Painted bunting; looks like he
bathed in a rainbow

 


 

In the spring garden,
brown bench is perfect spot for
sitting; no one does

 


 

Six white petals each
Appeared out of nowhere
Star-of-Bethlehem

 


 

Cloister
View of mountains; tent
pitched, camping in
Oh-Be-Joyful Valley

 


 

Purple-black starry sky,
dark silhouettes of trees
Comet flashes by

 


 

After the snow storm,
trees appear dipped
in cake-like icing

 


 

Snowy Egret
The snowy egret
looks like he’s having
a bad hair day

 


 

A lightning bolt strikes
through the reddish purple
sunset sky

 


 

At the edge of a cliff,
two birds touch beaks

 


 

Dusky blue, muted
green; foggy dawn
at Reflection Lake
