Five Spring Haiku

Near the path, yellow
ladyslipper orchids await
Cinderella's step


Paths through birch trees
luring eager supplicants
to discovery


Striped chipmunks race
cheek pouches filled with seeds
dreams of winter cold


Mossy rocks under
dappled shade shelter hidden
gnome universes


Cedar cloaks the limestone
leaf coins dance in breezes
Clearing souls

--Barbara Malcolm
