Forest Haiku IV

a golden smile
mesmerizes attention
still cool air

buddha statue
curvaceous mudra
winter light

old stained sign
grows from a trunk
so many rains

bamboo archway
and scattering light
a cooling path

looking right here
giant belly, tiny feet
discarded leaves

bright white sky
the silhouetted bamboo
leaves and lines

patches of light
windless afternoon
forest stroll

among twigs
saffron mushrooms
triple gem

ghostly web
atop brown leaves
traps the eye

a golden leaf
reveals nothing
but the forest

dark temple frame
is blown wide open
enlightened trees

a silver gate
trees locked away
until my return
