Yellow butterfly,
the journey’s fraught with danger—
will you be my guide?

Version 2
A path leads to distant mountains in California’s Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
 


Hearing a blackbird
sing on the misty mountain,
I follow its voice.

Five Haiku with Tea


1.
Rainy afternoon—
a broken silk umbrella
lies in the gutter.
 
2.
How placid the cat
curled seemingly forever
in the old man’s lap!
 
3.
How satisfying
to drink clear, cool spring water
from a clean white cup!
 
4.
In darkness the hills
hold lurid conversations
with the river stones.
 
5.
Autumn advances—
the maple’s leaves turn crimson
without fuss or noise.
