Haiku by Kim Peter Kovac

shimmering sunlight
on the waves of the river
eyes squinting from glare

the crisp morning wind
ruffling the dog's shaggy fur
rainstorm approaches

writing poetry
in a specified structure:
what liberation!

the writing of verse
while seeking out the quirky
how lovely and fun

Her eyes flash like stars
Little diamonds shinning bright
Yet so far away

Heart grows silver wings
Soars up high into the clouds
Rain of pumping beats
