4 Haiku


Pond ducklings belly flop

Furious feet, motor tails —

Minnows duck and hide


Tail end of winter —

Beside the fire, a striped cat

Dreaming of tiger


Sleeping scuppernongs

Purple light of Autumn moon

A doe’s 8-ball eyes


Crouching iguana

His low worldly view a stone

cold-blooded comfort
