Six Haiku

Book Excerpt: Old Roads

Six Haiku

into a single blue
lake and sky

the crickets
they change tune

horses snort
breath from their nostrils
fills the air

amid cracked stones
of the cemetery —
wild strawberries

slow falling star
forming a line
with the airplanes

Big Dipper
flying through it:
jet plane

Six Haiku
