Three New Haiku


a hummingbird

hovers and darts and hovers –

my restless mind


bathed in moonlight

she turns toward the window –

old woman dying


setting free

a trapped fly –

smiling Buddha

  1. Dear Dan–Count me among your fans please! Your haiku are spirit lifters. Do you know J. Allen Boone’s Kinship with All Life and his friendship with “Freddie the Fly”? If not, you would love his short book — as he would have loved your haiku, especially about what made Buddha smile. Warm thanks, Kathy Plotkin — who first found you through the Personal Historians.
