Haiku: Autumn Pallette

Red cheeks of apples
Gray squirrels a-scurrying
Bright flaming orange leaves

Blue skies overhead
Soft green grass still a-growing
Crazy quilt glory

Haiku: Pesky Nuisances

Pests have legs and crawl
Others meant to fly have wings
Bad ones bite and sting

But the worst of all
Can be found in human forms
Too many to list

Haiku: Time Intractable

Fiddling on his roof
Puzzled amidst changing times
Tevye’s words still ring true

Can things stay the same
Honoring past treasured ways
Moving future-wise?

Roots traditional
Most beloved and revered
Bear new fruits in time

Haiku: My Favorite Food Group

Luscious lemon squares
Decadent dark chocolate
Don’t get me started

Warm salty pretzels
Guacamole I yearn for
White wine and dark beer

Strawberries and grapes
Swiss cheese, feta or cheddar
Tasty together

Now about dinner
Must admit I’ve no room left
I filled up on snacks

Everyday Inspiration Day Three: Home

Home is anywhere
For years or just a moment
A place to belong

Somewhere I’m welcome
Sky vast overhead shelter
Ground steadies my feet

Air breathes me alive
My food nature’s rich harvest
Night sounds hush my sleep

Rain brings me water
Rivers sparkle with beauty
Giver of all life

Earth’s people suffer
Violence rends lives asunder
I pray they find home
