Haiku

Just because it's a Haiku kind of day here on the Outer Banks. 
Enjoy,
Dan.

Over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow.
                                               ~ Soseki
                                                         

                                                          As if happiness
                                                          is waiting ahead -
                                                          the new calendar
                                                                                          ~ Inahata Teiko


Butterfly
my attention
attention span
                           ~ John Stevenson



                                                          I kill an ant
                                                         
                                                          and realize my three children
                                                         
                                                          have been watching
                                                                                                ~ Shusan


Harvest moon:
around the pond I wander
and the night is gone.
                                   ~Basho

  2. Hey Dan,

    Beautiful collection of Haiku. Love the butterfly one, I just sat with it for a while and let it sink in. Very satisfying.
