Six haiku

by Gregg Dotoli

quiet sunrise mirror
orange purple clouds and moon
off wet bullfrog eye

busy grey squirrel hears
fall acorns pit pat bounce
dashes out of nest

bored black calico
studies scuttling beetles
planning an attack

red grey woodpecker
shuffles and hopscotches
listening for ants

bright red cutthroat trout
senses dancing beetles
splash wakes desert fox

hissing fall raindrops
tapping rich soil and roses
night scents meander
