Five Haiku

by ayaz daryl nielsen



myriad worlds

this dissolving earth
the myriad worlds we’ll seek
and also ruin


matriarchs

civilized planets
sacred presence in them all
gray-haired matriarchs


within

our old ones don’t die
passing through other spaces
their genes within us


and quite beautiful

distant space station
these lady ambassadors
from a nearby moon
in formal attire
golden bells on
their silver horns


blue antenna

my blue antenna,
waving ‘I care”, and! your blue
antenna waves back!
