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
