A SMALL GARDEN (HAIKU)

sitting, time biding
leaf floats down from branch
trampled under foot

 

road salt crusts over
etched into a chrome bumper
the heron returns

 

pine needles a bed
for the deer and the hunter
tall pines cry leaden tears

 

tangled broken branch
dangling from a barren oak
awaiting spring rain

 

giant cranes are perched
on thin spindly legs, necks bowed
steel beams scratch the clouds
