estate sale--
the rake lies untouched
among brown leaves

@JJ May 2004. Published in GINYU in July 2004.

About the author: My name is JÖRGEN JOHANSSON, living in Lidköping, Sweden, and I'm a member of the on-line CHERRY POETRY CLUB. I wrote my first haiku in April, 2001, and started, of course, to write in my native language, publishing a couple of haiku "pamphlets" on my own RIVER MAN publ. co. In March of 2003 I wrote my first haiku in English, and haven't looked back since; i now write DIRECTLY into English.

    house sale
    the buyer wants to know all
    its previous owners

    Pensive haiku.
    A brown study revealing
    visions of sad delight.

    I know it is the feelings, and depends on the other haiku for its visuals, but it IS a response.

    chilly autumn morn
    tiny webs amidst the grass --
    gatherer of dew


    burnt pine straw -
    remembrance, good and bad times
    life's ebbs and flows

    estate sale ~
    a stranger caresses
    the spinster's locket

    The first salesman:
    autumn wind sweeping hastily
    all the courtyard

    clouds further away --
    day ends
    beginning to a new week

    autumn chill
    leaves cover the grave

    solitude -
    winter dream
    touched by your hand
