Five Haiku/Senryu by JL Huffman

 



Haiku/Senryu


whippoorwill’s

endless chant

say my name


 

fragrant blooms beckon

toxic seedpods betray

the weight of wisteria


 

summit cloud

hoary shroud of mist

enveloped by grief


 

fallow fields

a turkey gleans for grain

famine


 

symbol of hope

moon goddess incarnate

noble rabbit
