Poetry Tuesday: Haikus

Today, a few of my favorite haikus from a book my mother gave me for christmas a few years ago.  The haiku is lovely because the poet must capture so much depth with so few words. Do you have any to share?

morning glories -- 
the well-bucket entangled
I ask for water

he says a word
I say a word:
autumn deepens
(Kyoshi Takahama)

a warm fall day,
learning from this rock
to do nothing
(Paul O. Williams)

shorter kisses
longer quarrels -
winter solstice
(Eric Amann)

the stars
are all in place
(Raymond Roseliep)

the inner tide
what moon does it follow?
I wait for a poem
(Diane Di Prima)
