twilight corner
a puff of wind suddenly
moves the paper bag

__It seems this may be a discarded bag in our atmosphere Well, at least it's paper and can cycle itself back to nature; rot becomes positive. Well said Frank! :<) _m

plastic bag
clings to this tiny keel
dagger board

Ah, yes, terrific haiku.

I think many of us composed a flying shopping bag haiku in our time. There’s fewer around now, but they still appear, both bags and bag haiku. :-)

above the shop roof
a white plastic bag floats
the starless night

And a darker one...

sultry evening
liquid from the take out bag
runs near the victim
