Five haiku about shadows



a cloud's limp shadow
skates over sibilant sand
as swift as a thought



blue motorcycle
in the shade of a cycad
chrome noisily cools




wealthy shadows shield
the languid linen lunches
in courtyard cafes



skittish leaves tremble
dancing on messy bed sheets:
errant gray inklings




lagging on the rail
the grackle's darkling double
like a second guess
