forest walk--
a spider's shadow
climbs the tree

    Hi, Kala
    Your haiku is very nice. It is simple and understandable. My compliments!

    in the garden
    is added another flower,
    my sadness...

    A breath of wind:
    the outline of a fly
    in the cobweb

    kala,
    thank you for the nice image. your poems
    are always thought provoking, and well
    drawn...


    sundown...
    with a gentle tug
    the mime turns on a streetlamp


    Battery Park...
    the mime's shadow
    mimics his every move


    prado!

    a dance through the fog
    she watches with closed eyes
    the sun going down
