placing a painted blue stone
on her loved one’s grave

Fox

Far beyond the gates
I seek my muse and find her,
singing to the fox.

An autumn morning—
even the crows fall silent
at the sun’s rising.

Tucked

Day’s end, with mountains in the distance, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona


Kobayashi Issa’s haiku about a mountain’s shadow inspires me to write a new haiku:

 

misty day—
in evening mountain’s shadow
candyman’s flute

 
~~ ~~ ~~
 


tucked among branches
the mountain alone remains
after shadows pass

Before the paint dries
on the mural, a spider
arranges her web.

Mask

Jerry Kilbride’s haiku about a wheelchair child inspires me to write a new haiku about a child in a mask:

 

the wheelchair child
reaches for bubbles
she just blew

 
~~ ~~ ~~
 


With her magic mask,
a girl sees fiery comets
whooshing through the streets.
