Anna Poplawska: Haiku

so many headstones:  
..so many more blades  
........of grass Spring–
  ....a new moon cradled in
  ....the crotch of a still leafless tree
I dream of a bachelor  
with shaggy red hair...  
and red leaves Gentle summer breeze
..........falling yet oak leaves fall... Aah, you
  white-bellied squirrel you!
   
Street light, ball of light,  
leaves receding far into  
....the nightfall, full moon. Boat, in reflection:
  ....fuzzy edged,
  ......rippling apart
