“A Few Haiku (4)”

(c) 2021 by Michael L. Utley

(#19)

In the autumn copse
Naked gods shiver as wind
Snatches leafy cloaks

…..

(#20)

Field work is done
Village sings its evening song
My heart waits for me

…..

(#21)

When leaves fall earth mourns
And heaven cries; when I fall
Who will weep for me

…..

(#22)

Autumn earth is dead
Solemn winter dirges mourn
Spring-song resurrects

…..

(#23)

Skipping stone succumbs
Sinks among indifferent koi
Drowsing near the reeds

…..

(#24)

Autumn sadness is
Too much to bear; tears freeze from
Early winter’s kiss
