Eight Haikus

The evening sky gleams
A beautiful easing sun
At home, geese cackling

Jellyfish surface
white bodies in amber haze
hug the oars warmly

new ivory cranes
downy amber feathers fluff
tangerine sundown

Jackfruits on a cart
heat, intoxicated bees,
who would taste sweeter?

cows grazing at dusk
chessboards in watercolors
painted thin, shaky

Lightning cracks at night
window hinges croak in turns
the frog falls silent

Oak leaf knocks beetle
still, immobile, feigning dead
blink! the dry leaf walks

green caterpillar
a tit eyes right opposite
slips, falls alow, coils
