loving haiku

I’ve been listening to podcasts of Haiku Chronicles by Alan Pizzarelli and Donna Beaver.  These little Japanese poems amaze me more and more.  Here are another couple of my attempts at the short little haiku:

.

dusty corner

of a busy warehouse

butterfly…  sweep.

.

sitting in traffic

watching the flight of a crow

on a low grey sky

.

telephone wires

connecting –

possum’s nightly walk

.

  1. I love the last one in particular. Something about the juxtaposition of the manmade and the natural always really gets to me. And this really makes me see a dark street strung with wires and a possum trotting along below them.
