Six Jumps

searching for a house
where three children play jump-rope
till the supper call
~~ ~~ ~~
Loud clashing cymbals—
even the deaf boy hears them
and jumps from his chair.
~~ ~~ ~~
a broken platter—
crickets jumping at the chance
for dabs of jelly
~~ ~~ ~~
arthritic creaking
of an old windmill at dusk—
up jumps jackrabbit
~~ ~~ ~~
on a granite ledge
she attempts to justify
her reasons to jump
~~ ~~ ~~
after the frog jumps
another page of haiku
in Basho’s manner
