Haiku--By Ron C. Moss--Australia

tiny silverfish
you carry the moon
on your back
______________

dying cormorant 
the endless reflection
of mountains
______________

after heavy rain
the silent drips
of blue 
______________

freshly oiled
the feel of a wooden boat
in the darkness
______________

soft rain
on red roses . . .
we grow older

  2. I loved your haiku, especially the first. I don't know what kind of silver fish you are speaking of (perhaps an actual fish in the ocean deep) but I imagined a tiny bug we used to call a silverfish where I lived in the desert of Arizona, crawling around at night, reflecting the moon light (if that were possible). Interesting how the words of another can evoke images long forgotten. Thanks for the tid-bit of childhood memory that was evoked within myself. If I may be so bold as to mention on Whispers, it also brought to mind an analogy; that being, my "deep desire" to reflect the "light" of the "Sun" of God especially as we go into this Easter Season, celebrating His resurrection. Thank you for sharing your talent.
    Love, Charlene
