TROIKU - BREEZY
chasing a fly
a newspaper rolled to use
as a swatter

a disturbance
in silent meditation mode -
that buzzing sound

eyes fixed
regardless of the breeze
lifting the curtains

[haiga - Pink Clouds of The Morning]


TROKUI - PINK CLOUDS OF THE MORNING
the aroma of pine -
a pine cone sturdy enough
to keep till Christmas

dawn birds out calling
and the young morning's fresh rain -
oh to sleep longer

a wash of pink clouds
and now the silent grackle
reach my words
