Haiku by Ron Sparks

  • lost in his phone
    that businessman
    misses the sunset

  • red cardinal
    alights nearby –
    notices me

    05/29/16

  • afternoon shower –
    finches bathe in my
    rain gutter

    05/22/16

  • red cardinal
    alights nearby –
    notices me

    05/29/16

  • afternoon shower –
    finches bathe in my
    rain gutter

  • brittle leaves
    swirl in circles
    behind the motorcycle

    10/25/15

  • the leaves fall;
    my jasmine tea
    scents the air

    08/30/15

  • brittle leaves
    swirl in circles
    behind the motorcycle

    10/25/15

  • the leaves fall;
    my jasmine tea
    scents the air

    08/30/15

  • summer sweat
    hugs my whiskey glass;
    runs down my back

    07/19/15

  • serpentine road
    turns into the sun;
    my throttle opens

    07/15/15

  • twilight –
    above the uncut grass
    are fireflies

    06/16/15

  • full flower moon
    in its halo –
    the space station

    06/06/15

  • a single tear –
    my whiskey glass
    catches the rain

    06/03/15

  • morning dew;
    bent in prayer
    a pink tulip

    05/15/15

  • pink tulips
    laden with dew
    greet the morning sun

    05/15/15

  • the little pond –
    spring frogs sing
    in the humid night

    05/15/14

  • obscured by my breath
    rocket rises in the east
    I forget I’m cold

    01/23/14

  • left on the ice
    a broken hockey stick
    weak winter sun

    01/20/14

  • glass on the pond —
    the koi still swim
    under the ice

    01/19/14

  • the rocket launch;
    inside Orion
    a new star

    01/19/14

  • yours has frost
    yet mine has none
    — the wolf moon

    01/18/14

  • light and breezy
    across the lake surface —
    children laughing
