The Small Poem Re-visited Again (Forever!)

A Few Haiku in Autumn by Ralph Murre

voices on my walk
gold leaf veneer of this day
the bright-bloused women

among the birches
old men listen for music
peeing on dried leaves

which is you, heron?
white bird or white reflection –
the dark pond won’t tell
