rising river steam
cathedral bells chime
out of synch

early morning

dog walking

steam rising

A linked renku with Su Wai Hlaing

new life

flows inside my daughter

as mine ebbs

fresh new leaves are symbols of 

another new beginning 


the grain grows and ripens

then harvest

summer breeze carries along

smell of harvested barley


from a distance 

my late father

reminiscing my childhood 

my dad was the best singer

lullaby music

baby is listening

to silence

summer reclining
an ant
crosses my mind

Tried and failed to get above published so reworked to:

staring up at the sky
an ant crosses my mind

summer rain
swallows swooping
foot in a puddle

I submitted this following a 'when, what, where, prompt on 'sharing haiku knowledge' on facebook and receive the comment from Bee Jay:

"Usually a haiku contains one cut and two grammatical units. Your example reads like a list, unless you are showing us some swallows swooping somebody's foot in a puddle. Is that what you are showing us?"

Grateful to receive the comment I amended to:

summer rain
with swallows swooping
foot in a puddle
