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.

kingfisher morning—
scanning the placid waters
for one piscine sign

this dark autumn night
the bright stars of Milky Way
cries of geese above*


in placid mountain waters
seven fathoms deep the song
