Haiku ~  David Rudd-Mitchell

 

Sorrow,  
the fly I could not kill  
-dead in my drink.  
  Summer,
  the once meek kitten
teases a bee.
Night storm,  
tomorrow the grass white  
-with blossom.  
  time to go out!
  I recognize the flies
  By their size.
Rippling,  
The tall trees  
-and the dog's tail  


David Rudd-Mitchell is an occasional poet who has poetry published in a variety of small press magazines. His poems have also been broadcast on BBC County radio.
