shade the street corner lot
where laborers wait

    brume, broken light
    stray, in the intersection -|- -
    traffic yields

    Thanks for this nice Haiku ~ Here is my response. A typical Indian scene!

    fresh juice parlour
    in the banyan shadow
    with butterflies ~

    planted for shelter
    the banyan tree
    now a shrine

    honeysuckle dawn
    fast moving, black ant ...
    dust along the path

    Dog days -
    the shadows of pines
    so thinly!

    piebald skies
    the sun
    about to set
