A Quiet Dwelling
leaves, clouds and sunset, all in a few lines
I have just a few small pieces for today as I’ve been spending most of my writing time on a larger project. This task is collating a collection of haiku to be titled A Thousand Small Wings/& Other Haiku of Things/Too Brief to Notice.
That first part of the task is nearly completed, after which I’ll move on to formatting and creating a cover. I look forward to making it available soon!
Meantime, perhaps not surprisingly, I give you more haiku!
Some days ago I discovered a minuscule silver web in acacia leaves.
A quiet dwelling
in the greenest of worlds–ah,
silver house in the leaves
And monsoon season has begun!
Monsoon clouds floating
cherub-pink in blue heavens.
Bring us rain, angels!
This last poem looks at summer evenings in the desert from a more playful perspective.
It’s day’s end: hide the sun from view,
And scrub the sky to freshen up the blue,
And dust the moon off with a cloud or two,
And pin some stars to twilight–just a few.
The silver house is really lovely, Such a nice way of putting that in a different perspective than it mostly gets. The last one gave me a lot of joy.
