A Collection of Haiku - Summer


I - Dawn Waters
Swamp hens guard the lake.
Warblers flit from reed to reed.

Humid sweaty calm,
South wind tickles stagnant leaves.
Comes a cooling balm.

Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
