Summer Solstice Haiku


Solstice offering–
ravens flock to the temple
the clang of cymbals
–Sonam Chhoki (Bhutan)

Shortest night
monochrome smiles
in family photos
–Murasaki Sagano (Kyoto)

A lone ant
trembles
on the cold floor
–Namie Edge (Misawa, Aomori)

Approaching thunder–
on the lake surface
a broken piece of blue
–Claudia Brefeld (Bochum, Germany)

Thunder bursts
passing its threshold
the world in chaos
–Hiroshi Tomizawa (Kagoshima)
