HAIKU

Carol Raisfeld


bedroom window . . .
   venus and mars
     with the naked eye
 

 
 
gentle dusk
   venus hovering  
     over the moon
 
 
 
 
whispered love . . . 
   mars appears faint
      next to venus
  

 
      
twilght chill
  venus moves closer
    to mars
 

 
 
 aligned,
   venus and mars . . .
     a shooting star!
