For Haiku Heights #12

Sweet delicacy
Yields to a butterfly’s tongue -
Blemish on a plum.

Rocky winter beach
Pebbles rattle with each wave
The sea greets the sea.

Wild Geese

Long necks lead the way
Compass needles pointing south
Winter in their wake

Two versions

One orange falling leaf
Floats against the autumn breeze
Monarch butterfly.

Monarch butterfly
Floating in the autumn breeze -
No, a falling leaf.

Red-rimmed yellow eye
Seagull glaring at the sun
Daring it to blink.

With apologies to Basho

Quick as a surprise,
The first migrating falcon
Over Cape May Point.

(A stateside birdwatcher's tribute to the famous haiku by Basho: "Solitary hawk / The joy of finding it / At Irago Point.")

Pigeons and sparrows
Panic into whirling flocks
Pointed wings above.

Lady Beetle

Smooth-shelled hemisphere
Candy-colored polka dots
Beneath: the dark jaws.

Ears stiff as sailcloth,
Whiskers poised like galley oars
The hunter embarks.

Haiku for a windy day

Willows blown sideways
Like kelp in a strong current
Wind is air's riptide.
