Haiku - Time Is Swift - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

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
