Y & Z of Haiku

If you’re inspired to make your own haiku alphabet – and there are so many other poems I could have used, please share the link in the Comments section.

Y

canyon dawn:
a bat folding dark
into a crevice

sunflower

sunflowers
the tube of cadmium yellow
squeezed flat

zinnias . . .
why yes my favourite

never younger
than now
i zest a lemon
