Haiku by Franjo Ordanić


a field of dandelions
a dog and a hawk following
playfull lambs

forest echoes –
a lumberjack trampling on
the field of irises

sound of waves –
a seashell whispers
goodnight story

summer drought –
only morning glory
grace my garden

clear sky –
sparrows dust bath
raises a cloud
