Summer nights

a warm, still, dark night ~ a nightjar at the window ~ dreams are being born — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Danger

moths around the flame ~ they play with fire tonight ~ only wax remains

Anticipation

I waited for it ~ through the heat of southern nights ~ and dragonfly sighs

Messengers

my mind is in circles ~ around midnight messages ~ I don’t understand

Nightshade

see in black and white ~ the beauty of shapes and sounds ~ moving in the night

When I’m gone

will you pick a star ~ out of the deep-blue night sky ~ and give it my name?

Sprinkled

night-time fireflies ~ scatter in all directions ~ leading me astray
