dog days


intimate as night
river idles in its bed
cataract waiting

You and I were thinking along the same lines! I like the conciseness of your haiku!

I love the latent energy of your haiku. That waterfall is just around the bend, I think. :)

There's a shock coming, there, I think.
Excellent words.

That word cataract has amazing, critical energy at that point in your poem! Delightful haiku!

TC said...

These are definitely the dog days of summer, no?

Rae Trigg said...

Beautifully descriptive haiku! I like the way you contrast idleness with a cataract just waiting to happen.

A slow march to a violent leap, eh? Nice. I like "idles" best. Good word.

This one left me rather contemplative. Wonderful contrasts.

Pam said...

What a surprising end to the haiku. It feels like a sudden bend in the river.

Rio said...
