Haiku--By Anne Curran--New Zealand

shaking mud
from my boots ...
a journey home

an empty hearse
behind the hospital ...
afternoon shadows

a man alone
on a porch ...
smoke unfurling

a man alone: Bones 1 (online), 2012

voices of India
from a kitchen window
smell of curry

voices of India: Valley MicroPress, 2011

she describes
her abstract art ...
sky of pink splashes

  4. Hello, Anne, I love all your Haikus postings above, but I especially love the 2nd one. Your words paint an abstract really between the harsh of sadness and the bold, uncontrollable appearance of the shadows......... awesomely done! Sheri
