one by one

    here , there
    winking in the garden
    fire flies

    Loved the pictures these words evoked. You can nearly smell the fresh night air. I created a category called poetry at Zoobird would like to post these haikus there. With your permission, I'll copy them for our community to enjoy!

    Marie... I love your 'garden lights!'
    From last spring: ducks shadows on the pond, the lilacs bloomed, and the moon seemed to take the lilacs' color.

    craving union
    their shadows join
    lilac moon

    Lovely. I see this in the gardens here in my new home in southern CA, USA.

    A magic lantern-
    in its light the lone woman
    reading haiku

    Hi, very fine...

    Oh, sprig!
    the trees are growing their fruits
    the girls undressing their thighs...

    Gently atmospheric.
