Some early published haiku and a haiku sequence

sunset
riding on the waves
gone-out to sea
Modern Haiku, 1971

alone in the woods-
dusky silence
filling the spaces
Dragonfly, 1973

spattering rain
in the woods ten minutes
and still not wet
Dragonfly, 1974

Mouthe, France

Sunday-
chickens scratching in the road
the flying dust

at the lumber mill
only the river noises
and the wind

moss-covered church-
creeping through the open door
the warmth of May

in the graveyard
one freshly weeded patch-
the sharp lettering
Modern Haiku, 1974
