Broken Wing


falling leaf. . .
ah, to be oneself
of weightless gold


gathering dusk. . .
the shape of my thoughts
in starling skies


oh tree
of the blood that bore me
I was pledged
by the sun’s inscription
to return to earth, to light

for and inspired by Ted van Zutphen

(Husband and wife’s first haiga!)

* The blog Ted and Svetlana started as a place to share and explore their mutual love of haiku is where you’ll find some of Ted’s haiku. It is a venue where others on the journey can share their poems and thoughts.
