Haiku Hijinks

Updated on September 16, 2011

Fireflies drawing near

The sun sinks low on the pond

Nighttime has arrived

Fireflies glimmering

Shadows dancing on Water

True love beside you.

Cucumbers growing

Corn stalks swaying in the breeze

Harvest moon rising.

The blistering sand

Battered by the foaming waves

Is moving back to sea

Birds singing nearby

Her gentle embrace wraps you close

Heaven arrives now.

The morning sun rises

Mist from the lakes now appear

The day has begun.

Birds are taking flight

Over the moonlit misty lagoon

Evening is approaching.

Three fuzzy faces

Sprawling in the bright sunlight

Pekingese abound!

Flowers blooming now

Sunlight sparkles on their leaves

Summer is now here.

The rippling water,

Concealing all types of life.

Fish swim peacefully.

Tears may be falling.

But, just like a summer storm

Soon they too will pass.
