Haiku & Senryu by Juliet Wilson


Haiku and Senryu


Autumn mist -

not knowing which fungi

are edible


hot flush -

Antarctic ice sheets



Spring thaw -

albino squirrel loses



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
