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

Daily Prompt: Hidden

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

Frost touched little tree
Autumn leaves fluttered to ground
Formed crimson puddle

Haiku: Winter Sky Watch

Small patch of pink clouds
Lit by sun just coming up
Previews things to come

Haiku: Another Shade of Autumn

Gray today and drear
Rain obscures bright colored leaves
Monochrome abides

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: 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

Haiku: Cacophany

Cricket’s lullaby
Honking geese herald the fall
Music to my ears

Haiku: Poet’s Malaise

Swollen gray rain clouds
Day by day color mindscape
Dampen my spirits

I dream of autumn
Leaves to fire inspiration
Summer’s a bummer
