Haiku Sequence: Pampas Grass

pampas grass
marsh mud glistens
in the rowboat


marsh wren's cry
the sun ripples onto the mud


wetland chill
a patch of ripples disappears


marsh lightning
the tree's blossoms open
into egrets


wetland channel
the moon spreads onto the grass

I really felt like I was moving through the scene when I read this. My favourite part -

'wetland chill
a patch of ripples disappears'
