Haiku Favourites

She bangs her son’s runners together,
turns them over.
Sand falls and falls.


roadside: all day,
teens in school uniforms
come, heap flowers


an old ladder
climbs a small embankment,
steps into the sky


in the glade’s cloaked silence
the shade-soaked song of
one bird plays


snapdragons clutched
by a rock wall:
mustard on an old man’s face


up from a cloud of gravel
peeks the half-moon
of a tire


opening the door:
a moth flutters in,
darkness too


the pen dips
into a small well of ink:
one by one, stars appear


Thought I’d change things up with a few haiku, first published in North Shore Magazine. I’ve missed writing them! More to come….

    1. So, Chris, after my last reply (once I saw you were responding to Haiku Favourites) I thought maybe you actually meant the images from my haiku! Thank you for that, if so.


      1. That’s funny. When you mentioned “fun looking” I thought you were digging through your archives knee-deep in haiku. The visuals are great – but nothing compared to the haiku 🙂
