Off-Beat Haiku and Tanka X

only one
tear for you I cry.
as they say—
“nothing missing,
nothing in excess.”¹

        mouse filching
        cheese from a trap—
        working man?
              through my window
              unabashed peeping Tom—
              the harvest moon.

autumn breeze—
gently rocks the elms
to sleep.

¹ famous Zen phrase.
