Haiku – Akitsu

 

weaving strands
of autumn sun . . .
kitchen spider

 

 

restless leaves
a nurse tries to smooth
her departure

Haiku – Blithe Spirit

 

laughing gulls
the wind pushes me
into the sea

 

 
river moon
the silent lights
of a narrow boat

 

 
moth dust
a smudge of moon
through drifting clouds

 
Blithe Spirit vol 29 number 3 August 2019 ISSN 1353-3320

Haiku – Presence

 

dunnock’s eggs
a gunshot cracks
the sky

 

 

spring dawn
drizzle opens
a blue iris

 

 

no more waiting
for him to keep his promise
last plum blossom
