09 Haiku - Criss Crossing Shadows

haiku one:

in criss-crossing shadows
of the mountains, we admire
sunbathed summits

haiku two:

in criss crossing shadows
we admire sunbathed
summits

haiku three:

tottering ballet dancer
the butterfly flutters
round a bloom

haiku three:

dead widow's bamboo bell
each chime echoes
a memory of her

dead widow's bamboo bell
each chime numbs
the mind

dead widow's bamboo bell
each chime echoes
a lonely year/her lonely years

haiku four;

dead widow's bamboo bell
forelorn the chime
has become

tanka:

dugout river
a nude doll stares
right through me
i discover stephen king and
- shiver

Chu goo writes such wonderful haiku's!
Very enthralling kind of haiku. Beautiful
I find 'tottering ballet dance' presents a very imaginative and lively picture. I prefer the first 'dead widow's bamboo bell over the second one. The tanka produces the effect that it describes. Nicely done.
Shadows are eternally fascinating to the poetic mind. But I was most moved by the widow and her bamboo bell. That poignant sound resonates. Warmest regards, Sandra
