on the 60-year-old
headstone, one
daffodil

    my shadow
    dark against the wall -
    shows no age

    at the accident scene--
    a small bouquet of
    red roses.

    Fukyu

    A bright and pleasant                  
    autumn day to make                           
    death's journey
    =====================

    overcast darken skies
    piercing through -
    a child weeps

    childlike faces
    with bright smiles--
    pansies hug your headstone
    ~~~~~~~~
    her smile
    ignited a candle--
    diminished sunset
    ~~~~~~~~
    cherish you lover--
    a sunsets beauty
    so fleeting

    sea death
    a bouquet of roses
    bobbing in the waves

    No words were spoken-
    He just held her by the grave
    She heard what he said.

    everyone has
    lost someone
    ...treasure each day

    (correct version of my third haiku posted above)

    cherish your lover--
    a sunsets beauty
    so fleeting

    green grass abound --
    cave-in
    dark below
