Haiku (67, 75, 78, 93 & 95)

67

The day is so long
That even noisy sparrows
Fall strangely silent.

75

Spring begins shyly
With one hairpin of green grass
In a flower pot.

78

An apple blossom
Trembling on a sunlit branch
From the weight of bees.

93

Leaving its nest,
The sparrow sinks a second,
Then opens its wings.

95

Like a fishhook,
The sunflower's long shadow
Hovers in the lake.
