Nature Haiku

Golden sky yawns
Egrets scamper across leaves
life in a silk fan

Copper rain drips dreams
sipping from a bowl of sky
not a drop wasted

Elder Koi shake fins
Chase shadows from the fresh pond
Death is not welcome

Wildflowers undress
Pink, blue, purple petals mix
A puzzle awaits

Twirling under May
An expectant mother blooms
Spring's first white tulip

Sandy,

These are beautiful. This is what I like about haiku.
The nature references.
