Haiku by Ian Daw

A hand to his chest -
the steady drip
of the tap.


Drunken shouts -
in darkness
the blossom falls.


Every strange face -
the Rosehip's
winter thorns.


The hymn, half sung -
a petal falls
from the bouquet.


Indian summer -
a boy throws sticks
at an oak tree.

Ian J Daw is 27 years old and lives in England. He has been writing Japanese forms for about six months, and so far prefers the haiku.
