A Sampler of Haiku


I.
Each dawn’s miracle,
Color comes back to the world.
Life returns again.

II.
Sitting on the stoop,
Glad I’m not in the airplane
Slowly passing by.

III.
Brown bird sits singing
Hollering back at rivals,
“Stay out of my yard!”

I was inspired to write a bunch of Haiku after looking at Richard Wright's Haiku: A World Elsewhere. Image courtesy of student.britannica.com. The picture is wonderful, clearly showing a bird singing, but it turns out to be a grasshopper warbler from Eurasia.
