Haiku: variations on 2


horizontal dawn
painting golden verticals
silent song for eyes


horizontal dawn
splashes vertical gold sides
onto the tree trunks


horizontal dawn
dabs sides of trees and houses
on the misty islands


horizontal dawn
approaches birdsong chaos
sweet anxious lover


molten-faced sunrise
traces golden verticals
upon surprised birds


bronze violet dawn
claim all eastern facing love
with your silent shout


Shout silent sun
splash your golden furnaces
on whatever stands


Shout silent sun
splash your molten fanfare out
claim the vacant sky


Shout silent sun
brand the embers of the night
steal the dark away
