Classical Haiku


Canyon, mesa, sky
Clouds and distant alluvials
Infinite, timeless

                                  
                                   Ancient bristlecone
                                   Quartz waterfall, melting snow
                                   Smooth rock, azure sky


       
        Crane glides through dusk
        Torii, stone, moss, sacred space
        Moon over calm water


                                                     Hushed and humid night
                                                     Moss in mist, oaks meditate
                                                     Runner attains peace
