summer’s end
the sparkle of coins
in the fountain

    The backdrop of stars overflowing into the poem's space certainly makes you feel you are both seeing coins sparkle in the fountain, and beyond.

    Great!

    warm regards,

    Alan

    With thanks,

    The haze has risen
    Glancing into the bird bath
    Hundred stars float there

    a cardinal
    perched in the reddened leaves
    it sees

    Lovely, resonant, expansive haiku…

    unplugged
    fountain, splashing

    Birch trees dappled leaves
    Tremble in Autumn's breeze
    Shadows slant. Sharp. Bright

    Lovely image Bob. As we often think of foliage and other typical fall items, fountain coins are such a refreshing image. Sparkling away in autumn sun, it’s very magical.
