Ten Haiku






Ten Haiku







 

tired




worn out shoes

and tired feet

the laborer’s lot
 

 

~~~

 
 

gift

 

mother’s day

a gift of lilacs

on her grave

 

~~~
 
 
 



cowboy

 


in my heart

I am a cowboy

too bad I’m a girl

 

~~~



winter

 


critters scurry

preparing for winter

a nut cracks my skull

 

~~~

 



autumn

 


shadows deepen

as autumn nears

time to close the door

 

~~~



 



vine



wild vine

climbs the tree

the canopy is its goal

 

~~~

 



darkness



eternal darkness

a moonless sky fills my room

with another sleepless night

 
 
 

~~~
 
 


leaves



colorful dried leaves

flutter in the breeze

a whirling dervish dance
 
~~~
  
 
storm



rolling thunder

a swift storm closes in

swallowing up the day


 
~~~
 


windowsill



on my windowsill

mischievous moon pays peek-a-boo

daylight come too soon

    Ann Christine Tabaka, has come along way in a relatively short time and I'm very proud of her efforts.
