3 Haiku by Scott Owens

new leaves light the air
carry spring's perfume
cry of young hawk

nights bring dreams of flight –
mornings I brush
feathers from my eyes

water striders
cross the stream -- shadows
on the backs of trout

Scott Owens' haiku have been published in Heron's Nest, Notes from the Gean, Shamrock, Magnapoets, and others.


  1. I really enjoyed these. The second and third are my absolute favorites.

  2. yes, nice, Scott. Love "water striders."
