MADD MOMENTS

buried in rubble
fainting smell of wildflowers –
despite adverse odds

haiku #40

this afternoon
taking another walk
after the rain
white apple blossoms fall
brings whiteout conditions

tanka #41

slowly falling
floating in the night sky
apple blossoms

haiku #42

a few white stars
falling down to the earth
grounded to dust

haiku #43

lightening the sky
some tiny grains of dust –
white apple blossoms

haiku #44

the lady in red
strolling along the green mile
finds orphaned sparrows

haiku #45

spring morning –
early field workers
search for worms

haiku #46

from skinny branches
suspended animation –
ruby-red apples

haiku #47

apple trees in bloom
raining down silky-soft tears
mainly white blossoms

haiku #48

SEA SHELLS

along common shores
ferocious waves shatter shells
littered with debris
there are dark whispers about
no patience for listening

spontaneously emerged
at a very low ebb
infinitesimal shells
beyond human sight
deep and hard to grasp
