                Haiku

 

 

   out the door

of the greenhouse

  the sound of wind

 

 

       

                      on the post

                   at the bay

                     a solitary gull

 

 

    

     bushwacking through

     giant boulders

   a massive snake’s shadow

 

 

 

                               empty woods

                                  wet leaves

                              darkness again

 

 

 

      the falling meteor

      the rising dust cloud

      the end of us

 

 

Marvin Schlesinger

mathmatics and science tutor, humorist poet, haiku poet

 

 

momentary encounter with a fox

             backward glance

             he’s gone

 

 

 

                after a long hike

                             in the heat

               refreshing orange soda

 

 

 

time in my pocket

             now lost

in the woods

 

 

 

on the bench overlooking

             the river

cool breezes

 

 

 

        the crunch of boots

                     laden with snow

        the icy stillness

 

 

 

down the solitary path

            the sound of birds

distant voices

 

 

Marvin Schlesinger

 

the crunch of boots

    laden with snow

      the icy stillness

after a long walk

in the woods

the old familiar car
