The First Collection

muddy path--
his hands swing sideways
for balance
 
rainstorm--
the hole in the mud house
widens

rain drop bounces
wet shoes on the doormat--
march drizzle

cold February--
a kid writes on the misted
windowpane

sudden rain--
using chewed gum to close
a leaking hole

rainy night--
grass show the level of
the muddy water

muddy road--
a cyclist tucks his trousers
in his socks
 
long walk--
the length of the dog's
tongue

stream inflood--
grasses on the bank follow
the water

after mating--
the brown hen ruffles
its feathers

Hi Caleb,

I did not even know of these haiku.
I just saw your fifth collection and like it but I like this collection too, especially…



long walk--
the length of the dog's
tongue

That is great!
