HAIKU

M. Franklyn Teaford

 

spinning in the stream
a leaf
with a passenger
 
   
  exercising together
the cat
and my shadow
   
fifteen inches of powder
. . . settles . . .
in the March sun
 
   
  a flock of sparrows
turns in the mist . . .
grassblades shiver below
 
a day in the life . . .
a dung beetle
rolls his treasure through camp
