Eager

© Laura Hegfield 2012




eager hands touching 
leaf broken from cider tree,
searching missing link


~0~0

hands clapping to beat 
of guitar tapping, trees dance    
in flamenco skirt 
  

~0~0

morning sunlight dips
inkblot into eager hands,
turning page to leaf

  1. As always your haiku are very special. I particularly like the second one with
    "trees dance
    in flamenco skirt"

  2. The missing link might possibly be an apple...a Winesap, perhaps, or a Fameuse, an old-fashioned variety also known as Snow...
