Haiku

possession
my house burned down.
now all i have are ashes
and the stars at night.

***

shakespeare
words like shining jewels
from the pen of a dying man
fall like winter rain.

***

companion
it snowed on the hills.
we stayed up to watch the storm,
climbed barefoot to the sky.

***

spring
sun-drenched days coming
and earth again has plenty,
so the sparrows say.

***

desert
emptiness abounds.
across the dead sky is stretched
the scent of the storm.

***

gnome
secret wicked smile.
makes magic with his fingers and
laughs great drops of phlegm.

***
