Birdsong and cool breeze
Fresh blueberries for breakfast
Quiet hints summer’s here

After Sunday’s snow
Morning sets fluffy white clouds
Afloat in blue sky

Haiku: Brief Run

Summer lingered still
Not yet ready to depart
Autumn knocked on door

Robed in finery
Fiery red, soft apricot
Jack Frost-designed leaves

Wind sent them a-twirl
Beauty carpets patio
Winter’s on the way

Haiku: Wall Flowers

Summer music stilled
Fragrant breezes play no more
Patio stones cold

People gone inside
Chairs wait for another year
Stacked against the fence

Haiku: Autumn Overnight

Gold leaves everywhere
Like the end of the rainbow
Leprechauns at play

Haiku: Procrastination

Temperatures warm
Stubborn leaves on trees still green
Summer flowers bloom

Autumn will arrive
Splendid colors flaming bright
In her own good time

Clearing Fog

Clear darkness of the sky
Last night a quarter moon
Summer creatures sing a serenade

At dawn a fog rolls in
Only light the yellow beam
Shining from the hardware store

Blue water of the swimming pool
Now obscured for winter months
By tarpaulin just as blue

I welcome the change
Summer a hard and anxious time
Fear for health of son’s beloved wife

With now the worst behind
As a family they move on
Life reshaped but ever closer drawn

I return to simpler ways
Where poetry lives in daily life
And remains my nourishment

Haiku: Underground Spring

Earth warms in secret
Precious green gifts creating
First crocus pops up

Haiku: Hope in Midst of Change

Pale November sun
Leaves turned dull orange hang from tree
Green house plants abide
