Haiku & Senryu by Juliet Wilson


 

Haiku and Senryu

 

Autumn mist -

not knowing which fungi

are edible

 


hot flush -

Antarctic ice sheets

melt

 


Spring thaw -

albino squirrel loses

camouflage

 


next door's new cat -

the mice gather

in our kitchen

 


walking away

from what's not meant to be -

falling leaves

 


fading light -

the memory

of your smile

 


heatwave -

waiting for a bus

that never comes

 


birch leaves become

a flock of goldfinches -

fake news
