World Haiku Review
Vol. 7, Issue 1, March 2009
black tulips fade
a chattering of sparrows
in the apple tree
Fingers grope
taste of whisky
moist lips

spring weeds wilt

in the ninety-four degrees-
june begins

a warm breeze -
falling elm fruits
catch the sun.
Morning tea
in the early sunshine.
Baby frogs scale the pond.

as spring ends

as spring ends one last dab of white paint

last cast
the fly's graceful arc ending
at the rainbow trout

Tits squabble over
birdtable scraps.
Fledgling swifts dart past.
ground floor window -
a hand picks
faded geraniums


fenêtre de l'étage -
une main cueille les fleurs
fanées du géranium
midday break
counting dandelions
on the creek bank
honeysuckle scent

the moon turns

into a flared nostril

spring wetland
the maple ripples
with the sky
Morning sunshine.
Observing with delight:
First garden poppy.
Festive Spring

Bold music bright out

from candy-colored cars

trilling festive spring

in the garden
chatting with the flowers
after today's shift
foggy morning
points at infinity's end
corner red lights
the ripe cherries

in the topmost branches

the worn-out brush in my hand
Rain patters down
from ragged, windswept clouds.
Lobelia blooms.
spring afternoon
the sound of gears and sails
from the windmill
