fainting flowers
quivering lightly
the days grow dark

haiku #55

in darkness
the lotus flowers bloom
shade of whiteness
silently radiates
dragged into open field

tanka #54

under lotus moon
a tired ant drags its burden
night birds in wonder


beneath the moon
a tired ant drags its burden
night birds watching

haiku #53

a black crow
seeks to parlay with
young sparrows

haiku #52

this afternoon
green field is frosted with snow –
white dandelions

haiku #51

in early spring
visible in dark skies
in lieu of snowflakes –
a flurry of white dandelions

haiku #50

it is raining
in this indecisive grey area –
early morning

buried in rubble
fainting smell of wildflowers –
despite adverse odds

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

slowly falling
floating in the night sky
apple blossoms

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

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

strolling along the green mile
finds orphaned sparrows

early field workers
search for worms

from skinny branches
suspended animation –

raining down silky-soft tears

*As May comes to end, Madasahatter572 leaves you, dear reader(s) with these parting thoughts. 😉 


in this green field
tossed away by school children
paper snowflakes

haiku #30

spring afternoons
infinite sunflowers
bursting open

haiku #31

city police officer
watching children
his hand resting on sidearm –
since the world has lost her way


dressed in white
playful children in the park
let them remember the sun

haiku #32

mistaken identity –
the discovery of a ribbon
is nothing more than a black snake

haiku #33

the birds fly high
by the dim light of the stars –
the disappearing sun

haiku #34

this green country road
frosted with apple blossoms
small grains of sunshine

haiku #35

taking a walk
suddenly rains down on me –
purple petals

haiku #36

snow all over
embedded on the sidewalks –
apple blossoms

haiku #37

a twinkling effect
blossoms lolling in the breeze
around dawn and dusk

haiku #38

stars of heaven
swiftly dancing then falling –
cherry blossoms

haiku #39
