Haiku--By Ali Znaidi--Tunisia

winter sky…
the pomegranate trees
turn into ghosts

evening sky…
maple syrup drizzled
on a stack of pancakes

gentle exhalation…
just the disappearing shadow
of fence posts

lingering hailstorm…
jasmine flowers on the ground
or hailstones

gentle drizzle…
the sound of clay
being dissolved
