Haiku by ayaz daryl nielsen

we rest by the sea
carafes of Prosecco outdoors
keening of white gulls

Spring afternoon
a queen wasp quietly
building her nest

morning crowishness
cantankerous racket
of being crow

on the fence posts
cowboy boots and hip waders
a woman's slipper

December's first ice
catfish and Northern pike
deeper and slower

red and white roses
children in the playground
sun above all
