Cloudbursts: Five Haiku for Summer


Lying down on grass,
first asleep, then looking up--
Cloud grasshoppers leap!


Afternoon silence,
what we are saying--
the clouds move on too.


Lessening of light
when a cloud obscures the sun--
I am alone now.


Sinking into sea,
the sun takes the clouds with it--
I am not alone.


Neither time nor pace,
I drink in the starry sky--
and let go the race.
