Exploring the poetry of everyday life

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

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: Hiding in Plain Sight

Bright autumn colors
Wait beneath summer’s green leaves
Jack Frost’s grand surprise

Dark tresses of youth
Age transforming to silver
Alchemy’s magic

Haiku: Spring Nudgings

Leaf buds unfurling
Squirrels nip them for dinner
Life cycles in gear

Pool cover removed
We await fresh blue water
Still wearing jackets

Moon in the night sky
Ever waxing and waning
Some things are constant
