    Lol!

    An magic instant

    A prying bird, hops
    on the window sill its black
    eyes roam. It departs.

    re: a skunk... true story: this morning about 3:00 am while trying to cool the house down with window open.

    Love it

    the mantis

    humid afternoon
    alert green mantis praying,
    swaying, saying grace

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    tranquility

    suggestively lithe
    lightly breezed tree limbs swaying
    sows tranquility

    Enjoyed both poems. In Portuguese the mantis is called Louva-Deus (praise God!)

    Winter day

    Patches of cold sun,
    Heaven wearing a hesi-
    tant blue! Harmony!

    "Louva-Deus"... much better than Praying Mantis

    Enjoyed you Haiku very much: "Heaven wearing a hesi-
    tant blue!"

    ... back soon

    sturionic supermoon

    bright supermoon beams
    a pine martin's eyes glow bright
    whilst skunks scamper near

    Enjoyed!

    Urban night
    The coldest of moons,
    Noisy neighbors hover around
    Dog howls can be heard.

    "The coldest of moons,"... great first line - enjoyed your Haiku

    crickets

    cool down mid of night
    crickets chirp rapid cadence
    full moon, dim lit stars

    moon færies... an ekphrastic haiku

    cold pale moon rising
    færies dance midst water mists
    midsummer night's eve

    Enjoyed both moon Haikus and the painting is pure magic, thanks for the link( still have to finish reading the comment)!

    Sunday noon

    Frolicking dogs bark
    happily; humans en-
    grossed by their cells.

    Oh!

    Gegenschein,

    Sleepless nights,
    a lit window opposite
    brings morning relief.

    mosses/lichen

    mosses mingle 'neath
    old man's beard and witch's hair
    draped on dank tree limbs

    Enjoyed both haikus specially the last one.

    Ghosts

    White weird shapes
    people the night. The sun re-
    veals harmless blankets.
