an ant in my bed-
for the two of us
not enough room

the evening woods
filling my mind with quiet
and my hair with gnats

World Haiku Review Senryu contest
honorable mention
work of merit
December 2003

haiku really is about the little things in life, isnt it?

Adelaide said...

You're right, Emma, and some of those little things can be amusing.


Gillena Cox said...

lovely both and they can also fit the labels haikai; enjoyed the wit

much love...

Adelaide said...

Thanks, Gillena. Yes, these can do double duty as either senryu or haiku.
