PEONY

fresh tears falling
dotting the green meadow
covers the ground

fresh tears falling
from the summer night sky
the sweetest pink

dotting the green meadow
pink-white flurries
wrestles with the dew

covers the ground
gathering like pink snow –
peony petals

DEPTH OF A FLOWER

windy weather
calling the flowers by name
each nods

depth of a flower
flying away with the bee
some mystery

© Jane Reichhold (source: A Dictionary of Haiku)

summer swarm
clouded in mystery
drifts from flower to flower

summer swarm
voyagers in golden field
darting to and fro

clouded in mystery
gold(en) buzzing caravan
in a green field

drifts from flower to flower
summer collective
singing so sweetly

DAISIES

daisies standing strong together
after the storm

around the mansion
assembled constellations
brings me home again

daisies standing strong together
puppets on stiff green strings
revolt from its puppeteer

after the storm
quietness and peace
finally found

SHADOW(S)

blue autumn skies
folded into mountains
purple shadow

such a hot day
my shadow needs to cool down
under the willow

© Kyoshi Takahama (1874-1958)

such a hot day
denizens of shadows
below the tree

such a hot day
cherry blossoms falling
in lieu of sweat

denizens of shadows
lovers frolic
dreamy noon tryst

below the tree
ravenous fiends
pluck dehydrated worms

ENJOYMENT

bathed in sun colors
every blossom on the tree
becomes shining stars

bathed in sun colors
fantastical creatures
under white blossoms

every blossom on the tree
punctuates darkness
the white shines brightly

becoming shining stars
blooming cherry trees
twinkling beyond the dawn

HEAT WAVE

after the summer heat
raindrops kissing my naked body
Ah! that coolness

Chèvrefeuille

after the summer heat
secret lovers
float side by side in sleep

raindrops kissing my naked body
I sleep alone in my bed of tears
whispering love poems to myself

Ah! that coolness
omen of an impending storm
the world goes strangely calm
