Day/Night Haiku I

bumblebees don’t care
against the laws of Physics
taking flight, despite



leaves like closed eyelids
course with life, backlit by sun
face ever upward



unspoken questions
the chirps of cricket voices
noises in the night



sometimes the muse screams
a banshee’s wail from the dark
her song—sorrow, loss
