winter sun



let-down reflex…

cherry blossoms

by moonlight




winnowing moon…

a grain for the field mouse

and one for the wind

the soft flicker of waxwings

in the firethorn

    Lovely, Claire. I especially like “the soft flicker of waxwings/in the firethorn” . . . . What a wondefully evocative image.

      Sanjukta, Margaret, Brian thank you for your encouraging comments, it’s always a pleasure to know that you’ve enjoyed my writing and taken the time to comment. Congratulations, Sanjukta, for your THN accolade. That haiku was one of the haiku highlights of my year :))
