haiku retrospective xlvi

A set of haiku from 11 October 1999:

white-tailed kite
dances on wing-tips --
flight unmasked.

raindrops closed
the dandelion's flowers
open to the sun.

wind ruffles the pond,
swaying the trees' images --
a perfect pebble.

the garter snake
traces the sun's path --
night falls again.

Two jeweled fingers and a clever hinge to play with. Still a lot to strip away to discover a haijin under all that paint.

I rather like the last one, though.
