late sun
a dandelion wisp floats
into shade

    white wings
    flutter of late spring
    follow me home

    Well written Jeffrey, you have an outstanding grasp of Haiku.

    late sun
    rose fingers
    sketch outlines of the hills

    love your late wisp floating shadeward...and then there's the less transient aspect of dandelions...

    "searching for roots" --
    dandelions give the phrase
    deeper meaning

    twilight, in the forest
    of many trees --
    only one bird sings

    frenzied dance
    over field
    little moths' evening play

    too soon the sun
    the web unravels
