in praise of small things

haiku by christopher anthony leibow

tonight’s moon

tonight’s moon
showing off
two lover casting shadow

scent of rain

the scent of rain
through my open window
tea kettle whistling

waist deep

waist deep
I call to her
from the dark

in the rumble

in the rumble
of thunder
falling snow

engine running

engine running
a car honks
in the rain

.

.

.

.

this isn’t really a haiku or a senryu but a word picture, it allows the reader to fill in the rest of the poem.

scattered by a dog

scattered by a dog
a pile of wet leaves
autumn cold

arguing

arguing
the buzzing street lamp
yellows their faces
