HAIKU

Carole MacRury

 

late summer . . .
a moth settles on the eye
of a Gerber daisy
 
   
  overcast night . . .
the next door pianist
hits a sour note
   
late summer . . .
the pond koi jostle
for space
 
   
  dockside . . .
the heron's beak scatters
the herring ball
 
midnight barking . . .
a flush of starlings
from the foliage
