“A Few Haiku (15)”

(c) 2021 by Michael L. Utley


Fruit rots on the ground
In unattended orchard
Our love slowly dies



I plant hopes and dreams
In the fertile soil but I
Still must pray for rain



Sly kitsune slinks
Among magenta kiku
Shrewd white-tip-tailed imp



Thirsty tamarisk
In its drunken reveling
Drains oasis dry



Let the bitter plum
Remind you to cherish the
Sweetness of the pear



Those old stars above
Whisper of antiquity
And enduring hope
