Summary: Haiku Sequence which is discussed in William J. Higginson's Haiku Handbook:,M1

Pampas grass
marsh mud glistens
in the rowboat

salt marsh
sunlight flecks the egret

marsh wren's cry
the sun ripples onto the mud

wetland chill
a patch of ripples disappears

marsh lightning
the tree's blossoms open
into egrets

marsh bubbles surface on the twilight

wetland channel
the moon spreads onto the grass
