Chad Lee Robinson: Haiku

spring morning  
the shades of rust  
along the fence  
  big rain drops
  the hollow sound
the tulips of ripe melons
I meant to show you  
late frost  
  by the roadside
  a pheasant pecks the remains
  of a long winter
roadside stand  
cornhuskers talk  
with their hands
