Haiku for Buried Prayers – poetry by William Park

Haiku for Buried Prayers

the end of winter
willows fur in the chill wind 
and an almond blooms 

near the back fences. 
plums unfold under a streaked 
sky; these words - prayers, 

growing like the roots
of tall oaks. the stars raged in 
the fall horoscope 

the land turned inwards, 
biting and chasing for its
heart. soon comes the spring.
