A Haiku Each Day

Sixty-two hundred and five Syllables a year.

Archive for Earth and Water (Chiri)


The first rays of dawn
Set each grass blade glittering
Dewdrops en pavé.


Rite of Spring II

Sacrificial dance
Downy snowflakes whirl and fall,
Kiss the earth – and melt.

Up in the Air

First warm day of spring
Charcoal smoke and soccer balls
Float over the park.


Rainy winter day
Geese stand like statues of geese
On the sodden lawn.


Flurrying snowflakes
Swarm over a frozen stream
Like summer midges.


Heaps of driveway salt
Driven into gritty drifts
Deeper than the snow.

Alchemy II

A light sheen of frost
Turns dull yellow winter grass
Into sparkling gold.
