7 Haiku by Catfish McDaris

Aida

She is always there
my only true love forever
her smile is my soul.

爱达

她总是无时不在
我唯一永恒的真爱
其笑容乃我之灵魂

California

Dance during summer
making love to the raindrops
farmers smile at crops.

加利福尼亚州

在夏日翩翩起舞
与雨滴做爱正酣
农夫对着庄稼微笑。


Nomads

Ear always to ground
listening for buffalo
death food clothes home life.


North

Autumn winds whisper
kites smiling down from above
old man snow comes soon.


Meow

A green hummingbird
flutters outside the window
cat wants a new friend.


Texas

The wind never stops
exceptions become the rule
the truth never is.
