Haiku: wild sky, wind and water


Breeze gusts its cold chords

round the notes of summer’s song

autumn melody.



In the lake’s mirror

a second moon glows palely

caught in dark waters.


Pounding thunderclouds

hooves scatter stars like sparks

the wild hunt passes.


Winter waves carry

scents of snow and ice fields’ bite

the first brown leaf falls

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
