Seven Haiku

thinning fog
the day opening up
inch by inch

cold rain
leaves dripping
the last of autumn

the beach at dusk
gulls and a lone man
on a mission

distant rumbles
a trembling surface
on the pond

gone wild in the garden
the regrets I have

summer night
the light on my neighbor’s porch
goes out

summer doldrums
whistling through the junction
the northbound train
