Haiku by Chuck Von Nordheim

puddles overflow
paved lots and streets and sidewalks—
rain and rain and rain

ever unfurling
black fabric of fast river
upholsters the night

skies utter lightning
streams use a whirr of water—
few hear such wisdom

Chuck Von Nordheim lives in a yellow house by a green river outside of Dayton, Ohio. He toils as a graduate assistant in the Wright State University English department, teaching first-year composition. His work has also appeared in High Coup Journal and Haiku Journal, among other places.
