Haiku: Dante, red bus, nosy neighbour, insomnia, secret door, sister's hair

In old library
Read Dante by candlelight
As moths eat words

A pregnant red bus
The faces unnerve you
An old friend waves

I draw the curtains
Killing a patch of sunbeam
A peeping neighbour

I watch silvered shadows walk
On a moonlit path

A mute observer
Veiled in leafy vines
Chameleon of a door

Old tales revive
As one combs a sister's hair
Time halts to smile
