Three Haiku


Coronation
(Haiku written by Mary Naylor July 18,2007

The butterfly drifts
In floating liquid shadows
Then crowns the thistle.

The Ancient Gardener
(Haiku by Mary Naylor July 18,2007

Carefully the old
One threw away the flowers
And gathered the weeds.

Unheard Symphony
(Haiku by Mary Naylor July 18,2007)
Quaking leaves whisper,
Bird’s trill soars, creek sobs, bees croon,
But who will listen?

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
