5 Haiku

By Sergio Inestrosa

PROMPT — Despite ...

1

The dark current of

the Mississippi River.

Birds screech.


2.

A lovely flower

from the mountain bower.

A wild wind blows.


3.

A living water.

In his left hand a dry pen

that once had blue ink.


4.

It is breathtaking

the beauty of Ireland.

The patience of time.


5.

On the flower vase

A dozen of red roses.

A shell in her hands.
