Downfall Creek: a haiku sequence

                                                              river stone
                                                              we sit in silence
                                                              as the water babbles

                                                                            *

                                                               blue sky
                                                               nose deep
                                                               in a spider’s web

                                                                             *

                                                                spot of sunlight
                                                                on the forest floor
                                                                emperor butterfly

                                                                              *

                                                                  too wild
                                                                  for these pages
                                                                  autumn violets

                                                                              *

                                                                 gentle breeze
                                                                 the bare head
                                                                 of a dandelion

                                                                             *

                                                                  on the path
                                                                  of fallen leaves
                                                                  silence returns

                                                                              *
