A Night of Haikus

Night falls gracefully
a blanket of dark shadows
and shimmery stars

Silver snail trails loop
crazily and misleading
with no start or end

Long streams of sunlight
beam across the room, highways
for wandering Whos

At the base of tall
green blades of grass lies minute

Her agility
surprised those who discounted
her based on her size

Whistling winds doubled
unsuspecting trees, bending,
but not breaking, them

Yellow here, and red
there signal spring’s arrival
over winter’s coat

I say universe
You say God, perhaps we both
Speak the same language

Rain washes away
today’s sorrow, leaving a
brighter tomorrow

Minute or moment
life passes by, leaving us
to struggle with time
