Haikus

Haikus

 

Alice Liberman

 

Haiku is an aah

or perhaps a wondrous awe

that springs to a poet’s mind.

 

*  *  *

 

Leaves waltz with the wind

gowned in reds, yellows and greens

to heady fall tunes.

 

* * *

 

A Lilac scent

masks polluted air

I inhale deeply.

 

* * *

 

Once proud sunflowers posture

now hang their heads in shame

but I will remember.

 

* * *

 

I see through the fog

A distorted view of life

Not picture perfect.

 

* * *

 

Death looms overhead

ready to greedily grasp

no other exit.
