Creek walk haiku: 2 haiku

dragonfly stalks, skims
& hovers over water–
delicate hunter


if light shaped music
the sun would chime reflections
dancing on water

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    That second haiku is delightful. I can imagine the sound.

  2. nelle says:

    I love dragonflies… light and sound as interchangeable and as one. Hmmmm.

  3. Nice! Really nice. Physics (specific gravity – skimming on water surface) Biology (food chain and suggestions of predation), light, color, sound, movement all combine to produce multilayered meanings and beautiful poetry!

    “delicate hunter” is so good for dragonflies – I think they’re beautiful – and yet they creep me out a little bit.
