summer haiku and tanka

the full moon flutters
on the surface of the pond
dancing in time to
the first song of summer sung
by a lonely cicada

the summer moon bursts
from behind the clouds – startled
an owl takes flight

still summer air weighs
heavy against the trees and
then the rain begins

small bell sounds like rain
in the summer dawn – birds sing
to the cobalt sky

    Sigh. Each one a treasure.

    Absolutely gorgeous job you did! I can see in my mind’s eye the word pictures you painted. Keep writing forever. I will follow you from now on.
