Treasure Island

Haiku - Time is swift


swift river
so is time
listen to the river

listen to the river
time is
so swift

forest
i join in the million year music
with an achoo

this face is
a shadow too
the real me i hide from light

morning calm
the way
to start the day

a feather flies
into sight
i must really get on with life

lobster trap
my mind cool in seawater
and the fateful lobster

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
