ayaz daryl nielsen: six haiku/senryu

six haiku/senryü

melancholy day…
the pathway by our back door
yes, it’s beckoning!

sliver of a moon
it slowly diminishes
holding my wife tighter

a chilly morning…
pulling it over my head
our shabby old quilt

this evening alone
comfort with a long-time friend
path through the forest

beauty of the night
so many pathways exist
sunlight in the east

a new beginning
massive greenways opening
yes, sunrise again!

Among other deeply appreciated honors, he is especially delighted by the depth and heart of poets worldwide whose poems have a home in bear creek haiku’s print and online presence.
