Haiku by Sana Tamreen Mohammed

Tall trees often brood
over direful loss of kin
White pages protest

Fallen brown leaves crunch
beneath puny paws of fur
Two squirrels home bound

Hues of orangish
blue dance in late afternoon sky
Spring's Elysium

Haiku omitted
Five seven five syllables
mutely disappear

Where no graves exist
A still garden lies extinct
Birds hover no more
