Bill Waters ~~ Haiku

Haiku + Tanka, Haibun, Rengay, Shahai, & More

Three in French

lentement
du jour au crépuscule . . .
la fragrance des lilas

slowly
day to dusk . . .
fragrance of lilacs

rien qu’une benne à ordures
et cette azalée radieuse
s’épanouissant à côté

nothing but a dumpster
and that brilliant azalea
blooming beside it

la camionnette de crème glacée —
ils abandonnent leur château
à la marée

ice cream truck —
they abandon their castle
to the tide
