HAIKU BLOSSOMS



Rain washing wet
Exit humid heat;
Bamboo pines sway

~~~~~~~~~


Weary estate
Rustic and ancient;
Old people pace

~~~~~~~~~


Orchid stalks
Crystal flower vase;
Beauty adorns

~~~~~~~~~


Class reunion
Familiar faces;
Change intervenes

~~~~~~~~~


Old-time movie
Once upon then;
Romantic poise

~~~~~~~~~


Property market
Doldrums percolate;
Prices go south

~~~~~~~~~


Precious moments
Fragrance lingers;
Touchy feelings

~~~~~~~~~


Red light district
Pretty birds ply;
Ancient occupations

~~~~~~~~~


Evening descends
Abruptly dark;
Distant lights hurl

~~~~~~~~~


Fleeting surge
Momentum flips;
Emergent thoughts

~~~~~~~~~


By the wayside
Weathered old man;
Limping bravely

~~~~~~~~~


Haiku blossoms
Plain fragment;
Frozen experience

~~~~~~~~~


One by one
Passers-by stream;
Distant dream calls

~~~~~~~~~


Economic downturn
Job loss escalates;
Grizzly bear bites

~~~~~~~~~


Stray staccato
Morning birdsong;
Balcony solo

~~~~~~~~~


Seek then the way
Live well each day;
Be one with bliss

~~~~~~~~~


Cruise to nowhere
Sea breeze salty;
Modern distractions

~~~~~~~~~
