Haiku--By Elizabeth Howard--United States

dark sky
for a fleeting moment
one faint star

evening in the meadow
sandhill cranes
dancing with the stars

morning walk
tinsels of mist rising
between the vibrant peaks

hailstorm ends 
a rumpled robin
hunkers on a post

nature drive
a wild turkey flies
across the windshield
