summer haiku d'été – boreal forest = forêt boréale





boreal forest
bursting into flames -
how the stag wails

forêt boréale
toute en flammes -
que le cerf braille

frog pond
in Amazonia –

summer haiku – scared out of his wits = mort de peur


summer haiku – scared out of his wits  = mort de peur




blanched with fear  
a leopard bolts down a tree
and is fried by fire

mort de peur
un léopard descend l'arbre
et le feu le tue

terrorizzato
un leopardo fugge – 
il fuoco lo frigge
