Haiku--By Chen-ou Liu--Canada

an oak tree
with bare-knuckled roots ...
alone at twilight

scent of the morning air ...
the breeze pulls over me
a quilt of blossoms

raft of cherry petals
making a turn
the shadow and I

dripping faucet
and a pile of dishes ...
frosty morning

cloud upon cloud
along the snowy peaks ...
her unspoken words
