Haiku for Two and Nature

Lying on the grass
in silence we looked at stars;
you reached for my hand.


Clouds below; above,
blue sky: our breath together
making window mist.


Sun burns your bowed head.
How salty these hot tears taste,
dripping on my arms.


His anger ripples
to me like thunder after
lightning. The storm grows.


"I feel at home here."
Your joy: sky-rimmed fields. But I'm
in love with mountains.
