Bruce Feingold has a gentle way with haiku, with often a child-like tone, even as he covers turf from California to Maui to Tibet, and content from puppies to psychoanalysis. The charming illustrations by Eona are a good match in this work from 2004 (Red Moon Press).
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

I lose my way on the trail
—cairns lead me back
in a distant mist . . .
children skip stones
on an old pond
transparent day moon—
a green sea turtle carries its grace
to white coral
a wayworn traveler
slips into hot water . . .
a new moon
