Three Haiku – February 16, 2016

Standing motionless

An egret in the shallows

Watching and waiting

 

I remember them-

The shadows of the tree trunks

In a golden wood.

 

The coyotes wail

A map of stars unfurling

Mountain near the sea.

Three Haiku, February 5, 2016

At the mountain spring

I kneel and gather water

These dry summer woods

 

 

All this melting snow

The ground sodden beneath me

Earth drinking deeply

 

Like a hummingbird

I did drink in your beauty

For but an instant
