New Year's Day:
empty wine glasses catch
morning sunlight.

    times to be remembered
    new year's "eve" ...
    proud parents delight

    Thanks tweney for this pleasant haiku.

    new year midnight~
    through wild fireworks
    troubled bird songs~

    new year dawn~
    the sun blooms again
    in cool breeze~

    deserted beach~
    a pelican pecks
    a feeding bottle~

    first minute
    into new year
    visualising all my goals achieved

    second of may
    another new year's day --
    chirping fledglings


    spring comes
    winter's wonderland --

    life's abstracts

    A new born takes
    a look at oneself in the mirror-
    empty wine glasses

    fireflies, cool night
    empty room in the moonlight
