Haiku – Chrysanthemum

 

holding on
to last night’s dream
day moon

 

 

hält fest
am Traum der letzten Nacht
Tagesmond

 

 

late summer heat
the cat stretches
its shadow

 
Spätsommerhitze
die Katze dehnt
ihren Schatten

ghost moon
the wind rocks
her empty chair

 

fluttering sparrow
the last leaf falls
to the ground
