Bruce Ross: Haiku

late winter chill  
the porcupine tips up  
a fallen branch  
  on Buddha's head
  a little decoration
two cups clink spring snow
in the open cupboard  
spring drizzles  
  overcast breezes . . .
  the feeders slowly swing
Memorial Day without birds
a bit of fluff passes  
the highest leaves
