Six Haiku Poems by Katherine Soto




I saw a flower

Bearing burden as a cross

White, pure in the sun


The leaves falling down

Golden coloured just for us

Each leaf a promise


The wind is blowing

Whistling through the treetops

Foretelling a storm


No strangers are here

Things that drive us, lead us on

Ever expanding


The green frog dances

On its lily pad so bright

As morning sun crests


Smiling cockily

mumbling, strutting, mad, goat seeks

lewd mild idiots
