chirping of sparrows-
morning sunrays on the buddha
in the temple

    All the time I pray to Buddha
    I keep on
    killing mosquitoes

    cricket sings out -
    through the darkness
    sound of traffic

    Cat watching the crow
    The crow is watching the cat
    As I watch them both.

    The sunset.
    Extended shadow fell
    on my foot.

    seeking graces
    three sparrows
    on the church cross

    I could hear and see the chirping and the yellowishness of the sunrays whenever I read/cherish this Haiku.

    Fine Haiku ~ Gratitude.

    many butterflies
    roam the Shiva temple~
    fragrant Vedic mantrams~

    Buddha in moonlight~
    a frog sings incessant
    desh on the flute~

    drinking rainwater
    from a Buddha's paw
    a dragonfly in
