Some Haiku…..

#Haiku Happenings #8: Lady Nyo’s latest haiku, inspired by your own humble haijin!

Lady Nyo's Weblog


Watercolor of trees, Jane Kohut-Bartels, 2006

It’s full bloom spring, almost summer at least the weather says so.  These haiku are inspired by Frank Tassone’s haiku, (American Haijin)though he is the better haiku poet.  

Lady Nyo

The koi are hungry
Orange mouths gulp green water
Good the algae grows

Spring robins watch
Quarrelsome beasts these birds!
They don’t share the worms

Half submerged eyes
Of frogs in algae filled pond
Reflect cloudy moon

Swifts- dark crescent moons
Sickles cutting through the dusk
Tag the slower bats

Chatter of sparrows
Treble voices to spring song
Dried leaves percussion

Soft rains caress earth
A hand slides up a soft thigh
Cherry blossoms bloom

Sultry air disturbs
The sleep of husband and wife
Panting without lust

Jane Kohut-Bartels
