Six Haiku

By S E McCarthyPublished 4 months ago 1 min read

Death By Haiku

By cold, winter streams

Where young lovers took their lives

Silver willows wept

The plot

Candles flicker dim.  

Fighting men crowd the tavern -

Secrets plans are made.

May Showers

April showers pour

Though late by a month. Jump! Splash!

A happy child laughs.

Summer Shower

Summer rainclouds part.

Sunlight spreads across wet ground.

Golden puddles gleam.


Summer brings lush trees.

Flit! Flags flutter in the breeze

Synthetic reds stain leaves.

June love dies

An oddly cold June

I reach out to take her hand

Her pocket devours.
