Haiku

1.


'carry me'
cottonwood seeds
drift



2.

autumn again...
the wheeling shadows
of a carousel



3.

your words
soap bubbles rising
in a fair ground



4.

leaves fall
the mating season
for butterflies?



5.

autumn leaves--
how can my poems end
without protest

Homage


Haiku

sitar thrums
why  some tunes  dry up
with autumn


Alaap (Tanka)


fog
clearing up
at dawn
melody of birds
startles the friar

[ A tribute to Pandit Ravi Shankar ]
