Haiku--By Ron C. Moss--Australia

children's laughter --
a weekend father
with sticks in his hair

--Heron's Nest 8:3, Sept 2006

tired of this world . . .
suddenly moonlight
through my window

--Simply Haiku 3:4

white dawn
the calf's breath
on the udder

--Heron's Nest 9:4, Dec 2007

fire duty
the newly ironed shirt
still warm

--Heron's Nest 16:1, 2013

winter stars
a sick cat withers
against the cold

--FreeXpression 2007

  4. Dear Don:

    My gosh you are a master at this and certainly deserve your acclaim. After reading Heron's Nest, I thought - he couldn't possibly express another as well. Well guess what? I am hooked (line and sinker). What amazing talent and visualization you have. Thank you for the treats.
