Four Seasons in Haiku by Donal Mahoney

Starlets of Spring

After the Spring rain
two doves on a Dogwood branch
preening like starlets

Summer Snow

A row of lilacs
covered with a summer snow.
Ten white butterflies.

Pheasant Wings

Autumn and the leaves
are crisp in the swirling air.
Pheasant wings everywhere

Hope in Winter

Robin on the lawn.
Three hops and stops to listen.
Somewhere must be Spring.

Donal Mahoney lives in Belleville, Illinois. He writes poetry, fiction and nonfiction. Some of his work can be found at
