Haiku to go

Thanks to the folks in the writer’s group for your support! Here is the same series that started out in Spanish, now morphed into English. It is not an exact translation.

She stops on her journey  

for water from the brook

she is the stream

 

A spider in its web

inside the backpack

Of a mountain climber

 

 

The perfume

of an orchid in bloom

eternity in a second

 

It is raining in the city 

drops in the puddle

my tear, just another drop

 

A wave breaks on the shore

foam at my feet

I inhale with the sea

 

Death arrives inevitably

though somehow unexpected  

a moth crackles as it hits the light

  

The horizon is far away

the end approaches

I am the journey

                                                                            

He sits at the side of the road

To meditate on his confusion

He understands when he stops thinking

 

 

A twig falls from the tree

a dove swoops down and takes it back

to the nest on the branch

    I love the one about the spider.
