LEFT BEHIND

deserted house
wild roses still have a view
of the remote coast

vacant stares
from the vacant house
no one looks

left behind 

from the vacant house
dissonant notes
resounding into the night

haiku

on autumn night
after the rain
outside the courtyard
ethereal specters haunt
leaving behind rosy footprints in front of opened windows

tanka
