“sun through barren trees” – Late Autumn Haiku

sun through barren trees;
lit, ragged, remnant leaves; shards
in stained glass ruins


“silent, in the dark” – Senryu / Haiku

silent, in the dark
twenty bodies breathe. in. out.
armed intruder drill

I do confess there was a little phone watching that was not strictly kosher in such things, but the silence was impressive, because it is so rare.
