Farrera [14-18] a gunsaku [haiku sequence]

14. one crisp sound -
voices of sparrows
dripping of melting snow


15. thin mountain air
everywhere: rock crevices
empty walnut shell


16. snowcapped hills -
the foal's mouth
flecked with mare's milk


17. old tower-bell
in Farrera de Pallars -
when will you speak again?


18. the squirrel
(on a tree I do not know)
has a brother in my land
