HAIKU COLLECTION II


Soaked moon
In lake waters
Melted by dawn

Moon then clouds
Moon then clouds moon then clouds
Monsoon’s hide and seek

first a thud at night
then roiling sounds of waters
Found moon in our well

Spring garden
Albino chameleon
Sans action

Hill in drizzle
Like a dark beauty
In see-through nighty

Sun through new green leaves
On night formed puddles
Flash, flash, flash

Rain doctor helps
Pregnant earth deliver
Baby saplings

    An exquisite collection. You paint
    poems with deft fingers. My favorite one
    is about the moon in the well. it
    is perfectly enchanting.

    I also like to take my haiku and put them together to weave a theme. I like this one above the rest:
