Haiku by Carl Scharwath

lonely ocean wave
long travel completed
in a sandpipers retreat

fresh virgin snow
falling pine cone
whispers in descent

silent first snow
hides summer lawn furniture
in stillness

dawn trees awaken
fabrics of fog adorn
outstretched branches

orange crescent moon
holds memories of the night
in her silver cup
