      HAIKU

      There is only now
      One point in infinity
      Pregnant potential


      It is spring again
      All flowers turn to the sun
      And likewise do I


      Jabber, jabber, crow
      Why do you cock your head so?
      Such a funny bird


      Stalwart redwood tree
      Two thousand years of wisdom
      Put away your saw


      Fading fall flower
      Wasting in the busy street
      I see my daughter


      TANKA

      My in-breath catches
      Enjoying my red nectar
      The first humming bird
      A gift that the springtime sends
      Come back and please bring your friends

      I love haikus and have posted many here, especially the last couple of years. The ones you ve shared are beautiful. I found the redwood haiku very powerful.
