Six Haiku

great blue heron stands
motionless shadow watching
... nearby wild plums bloom

death shroud of white mist
borne on whisper-soft cat paws --
river valley morn

frost covers the earth
a lady draped in fine lace
beautiful and cold

night grieves loss of light
stars tentatively console
... unmoved, nighthawks dance

skeletal trees weep
world wrapped in cold bleak winter
.. my heart walks alone

redtail hawk sits, blinks
mouse scuttles, gathering seeds
... somewhere a heart breaks

-- Grady Manus
