Farm Haiku

I’m taking a haiku poetry course online with my favorite poetry teacher, Lorraine Mejia. I’d like to share some of the haiku I’ve written that was farm inspired.

1. Palm-thatched roof
sleeping bats hide
arise at dusk

2. Grass stands tall
reaches for the sun
new day

3. An ensemble of dragonflies
hover in midair
where to go next?

4. In August heat
dogs snore and dream
flick flies off their tails

5. Blue-streaked lizards hide
among squash leaves
run noisily

6. Sunset folds wings
egrets pass over
to begin again

    Hi Maya — I was in one of your online Story Circle writing classes a couple of years ago and have followed your blog with interest since then. These haiku are lovely. Thank you for sharing all your experiences in Colombia and in the U.S.
