Haiku: New Sky View

Crescent moon still up
Faint pink blush on horizon
Sun a lazy bones

Apricot Days

Now is my favorite time of Autumn
Apricot leaves glow in cool days soft sunlight
Mellow like pumpkin-spice latte
Delicious they warm me
I’m happy to linger and live in the now.

Haiku: Another Shade of Autumn

Gray today and drear
Rain obscures bright colored leaves
Monochrome abides

Haiku: Patio Coverlet

Golden, red and brown
Leaf mosaic on the stones
Like a patchwork quilt

Dawn sky Jack Frost style
Fingers pull apart gray clouds
Paint pink polka dots

Like beneath water
Sun shafts sparkle on ripples
Leaf shadows dancing

Everyday Inspiration Day Ten: World Outside My Window

Autumn is here and things are a-changing.
At the Greenbriar Apartments that I call my home
I look out at the patio beyond my window
Turquoise tarp covers swimming pool water
Fallen bright yellow leaves drift on tarp’s surface
Swimmers of Summer now only a memory.

Close to my window a tall oak tree my companion
Observers of animal traffic we notice
Squirrels stocking up run along oak tree’s branches
Gathering acorns not yet fallen and leaves for a nest
Below chipmunks scurry toward plant borders for hiding.

Today there’s no sun the air is still
Nobody’s lazing in a lawn chair hoping
To feel warmth while it lasts.
Befuddled wild geese who live here year round
Fly overhead circle back to their pond
Winter’s not here yet. We enjoy this day

Haiku: Broken GPS

Geese fly overhead
Honking autumn ritual
Nature’s sure bequest

Geese fly by again
Making circle back to pond
Now their year-round home

Ghost of memory
Inner compass says go South
GeeseĀ forgot the way

Haiku: Change In the Air

Sweeping broom brisk sounds
Someone clearing summer dust
Moving on to fall

Open window breeze
Signs farewell to scorching heat
Welcomes season change

Children back in school
Parents endless tasks increase
Grandma takes a nap

Haiku: Autumn Fanfare

Falling acorns thud
Autumn’s syncopated sound
Vee of geese honk south
