Haiku by Joan McNerney

What does this cat think
strumming his tail with such ease
to fugues of Bach?

The morning mist roams
back and forth like a
voiceless wanderer.

Shy autumnal bird
did you brush against the moon
to get that pale down?

Try to catch the wind.
Count the ripples in the sea.
Become a child again.
