Off-Beat Haiku and Tanka V

sunrise dream
gone like morning mist
before noon.
if I had but known
I wouldn’t have kissed you.

        starless night,
        the cool rains take my
        tears of waiting.
              resting on my sleeve,
              do you love?

in the mist
I hear you cricket.
by the gate?

        ha! caught you.
        this is not an inch—
              plash, plash, plash
              wet footsteps of a
              sloshing bucket.
