sultry afternoon -
buffalo grass tickles
the dog's belly

cloudless day
a wheat field rippling
in the wind

The bamboo
wind blown shadows
across a pond

in the woods
through the rusting can
a grapevine

late summer -
the falling raindrops
evaporate

after the rain
a flock of blue jays gossip
in the trees

a pair of mushrooms
in the pile of autumn leaves
umbrellas touching

winding road
the raindrops fall
across headlights

the window screen
a spider dines
on the fly

in one breath
the haiku exhales
a butterfly
