Beautiful Haiku Set - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

lone ant
on the wall
winter trail


dawn sun
knowing only by fact
it gets dimmer each day


comma-shaped leaves
rustle in the wind
the beauty of pauses


night river
the breeze sends the moon
shivering


raised drain
a heron negotiates
between the walls

    I admit to having difficulty in appreciating Haiku, John, but you bring out a real beauty in this piece that I find quite irresistable (Report) Reply
