What? More Haiku?


The Jasmine unfurls

like the fevered dervish whose

dizzy dance is prayer.


I’d like to think these

south-bound parts portend a day

of righteous molting.


They wouldn’t stay shut,

after she passed on, so I

closed her eyes again.

One thought on “What? More Haiku?

  1. Part of the magic of haiku is the odd offset between precise words and open-ended imagery. Your second haiku has me speculating about “south bound parts” and their relationship with molting, righteous or otherwise. On the other hand, the third one is so vivid I can see it. thanks for these.
