Juanito Escareal: Haiku

war's wake . . .  
oil-covered birds find refuge  
on the shore  
  Clouds of Magellan
  a grayish stench hovers above
gray morning -- the scavengers' mountain
orchard spider webs whiten  
with dew  
  the car thief
  also took with him
scent of jasmine plum blossoms
through the open window  
cricket song  

 


Juanito Escareal regularly submits haiku to Fuyoh/Rose Mallow, a quarterly haiku magazine published in Japan. He has a haiku published in the edge of light: The Red Moon Anthology of English-Language Haiku 2003, the World Haiku Association, World Haiku Review, Heron's Nest, and other e-zines.
