Rural Haiku


the road
winding into fog
cattle sounds


sun above
grass tips; a rooster
cocking its head


tribal dance—
the scent of earth
after a shower


holding blossoms
close to her heart
her coy smile


playground
the glint in the eye
of a squirrel


distant flute
a sudden breeze
ruffles in


a plop
off the wooden bridge
ripples


a swan takes off
the slow run
of the evening train

Starry Night

Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”


#1.
starlight
the cathedral of
a sleeping village
---a lone cypress
---prays with me


#2.

the tumult
in the night sky
haunts me
wind carries the scent
from another world
