Haiku Collection, 7/3/12

Wind has been given
unto the long, open land
purple clover blooms

Sparrows burst upward
out of the tangled hedgerow
a sudden maelstrom

At the river's edge
old man, his face so wrinkled
his eyes still fearsome

The muddy hollow
catfish rises, swallows air
sleek shape departing

A leaf, bright with blood
hunter follows, arrow nocked
forest falls quiet

The last of the light
an empty glass craves upward
autumn draws nearer
