Ten Haiku from Bill Cooper

second fermenting a rounded vowel bubbles up

*

crayon what to draw with this new shade of blue

*

a tree frog
flicking her tongue
solar flare

*

no people to disturb
their island nest
buried ordnance

*

tiny troughs
on the beetle’s shell
a sip of desert fog

*

approaching spoon that first scent of applesauce

*

aurora the sound of green swirls

*

a brown pelican
at ease on the pylon
bayside yoga

*

the moment we swap fear for love garden wasp

*

thunderhead her fire opal by candlelight


*Bill Cooper is
a professor and president emeritus at the University of Richmond.  He
