Five Haiku

by Alan Harris


Icicle drippings,
slower under western blush,
hint frozen silence.


A woodpecker clings
upside-down under his limb,
tuning the forest.


Cat crossing my yard--
shadow of the Infinite
stalking the Unknown.


Broken branch still clings
to all the tree it has known,
breeze-swayed above ground.


My sturdy white pine
preaches calm to the maples
stripped bare in the yard.
