and hummingbird—
after the same flower

will I ever see
your face?

the longing begins
at moonrise

cherry blossoms
shedding in the moonlight—
the Milky Way

my first kiss

salmon berry blossom:
how deep is your heart
for a hummingbird?

  1. Lovely, hermana. I think this one is my favorite:

    the longing begins
    at moonrise

    I’m partial to magnolias!

    • Me, too! There’s a magnolia at an elevated spot where the sun breaks through in the southeast in our courtyard, and when it’s in bloom it looks glorious. And that’s from where my magnolia haiku spring! I’m sure ther’s more to come. Mil gracias otra vez, mi hermana!
