under cypress leaves

under cypress leaves
soft breeze pushes riverward
– dancing points of light

.

beyond the river
city stains scarp-horizon-sky
– yellow fades to blue

.

wind-stuccoed water
under incandescent sun
– golden radiance

.

over golden sand
clear water rippling shoreward
bands of pollen grains

.

lone resting human
bicycle leans on park bench
tired eyes squint east

.

  1. These are just so wonderful. I find it hard enough to write one haiku let alone thread them into a series as you have done. A very special line is “wind-stuccoed water under incandescent sun…” Mmmm such gorgeous imagery!

    I like what I see so far!

  2. Thanks again Louise… I love haiku – they’re meditative for me, calming. They also make for great poetic discipline; one needs to really keep the imagery sharp and focused. (hmmm, sounds like a tip for visual structure, too ;^) )
