Haiku 160 - 165

Haiku 160, Tuesday 9 June 2009

Moth in an airport:
Which of us will fly farther?
Which of us is lost?

Haiku 161, Wednesday 10 June 2009

Impendent rainstorms
And I with an umbrella
Walk along and wait


Heavy rains beat down
The extravagant roses
Careless of beauty

Haiku 162, Thursday 11 June 2009

Hotels sound alike:
Elevators, hallway chat,
Distant doors slam shut

Haiku 163, Friday 12 June 2009

Those beasts of burden
Plodding, blistered, driven on
The traveler's feet

Haiku 164, Saturday 13 June 2009

Walkers walk faster
And the stranded curse their luck:
Rain explodes the clouds


Weeping Niobe
Turned to granite by the god
Wears away in time


Love's first rush declines
To habit's sad assumptions
Then age's comforts


Half-remembered touch
Of a long-ago lover:
Green leaves wet with rain

Haiku 165, Sunday 14 June 2009

Crammed in our hold, blue
Illimitable expanse
Surrounds us, the trapped
