Haiku 770

three deer in shadow
blurred ghosts going home at dawn
footsteps burn the frost

Haiku 771

tired puffy-faced clouds
float in the third floor windows
on the stained curtains

  1. I absolutely love the first poem. It is evocative and I have a clear visual in my mind’s eye of deer silhouetted in dusky mist, all in shades of slightly mauve-grey.

  2. We have so many deer in our yard, and I do not like them because they eat every plant I ever want to grow, and many bushes. But every so often a scene comes along as the one I described, and I see them differently.
