A bit more Haiku….

The koi are hungry

Orange mouths gulp green water

Good the algae grows


Spring robins watch

Quarrelsome beasts these birds!

They don’t share the worms


Half submerged eyes

Of frogs in algae filled pond

Reflect cloudy moon


Swifts- dark crescent moons

Sickles cutting through the dusk

Tag the slower bats


Chatter of sparrows

Treble voices to spring song

Dried leaves percussion


Soft rains caress earth

A hand slides up a soft thigh

Cherry blossoms bloom 


Sultry air disturbs

The sleep of husband and wife

Panting without lust
