Haiku- Spring 2014

return of the sun,
script in the shadows 
prophesy blossoms

forceful swell
in the drain ditch
where children play

all those months
drinking with my ghosts-
now with sparrows

midnight kitten
dancing on the tile floor
with his own moon

hard-strung thoughts
until a night rain streams
it all away clean

empty breeze-
new buds green-
memory of nothing

azalea’s magenta
in scent of hyacinths-
for a day or two

weeping willow bows
down to cherry blossoms,
down unto earth

lunging through life
on a rainy day- fluid
pigments of spring

beyond windows
of thought, a toss
of mud and sun

chalice tulip,
yes you can hold
a full week of sun
