Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Morning After

Silence. I hear it
After wind’s fury calming
Beginning new day

Pink horizon peace
Pale half-moon lights graying sky
I await new day

Early morning moon
Shining lantern in the sky
Foretells sunny day

Alchemy

Imagine dawn sky dressed in pink-ribboned clouds
Trees green-leaved in summer
Changing colors for autumn
Sobered by stillness of bare-branched winter
Chilling cold and deep silence.

Imagine a mother of sons and grandchildren
Heart filled with wonder, love, joy
And trepidation
World is near changing
Beyond recognition.

Imagine aging a worthy challenge
Rich adventures and exploring
Forge wisdom a gift
Hard-won and enduring
Unknown roads lie ahead

But for today the sun is shining
Golden hours to seize and embrace.
Shadows, too, can be lovely
I’ll plumb them tomorrow.
Translating my life into poems.

Bare branches lovely
Fingers sketching on dawn sky
Blank slate of new year

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

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

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

Haiku: Changing Tempos

Winter dawning sky
Lovely clouds with stripes of pink
Linger for my view

Sky of summer dawn
Early wash of rose and blue
Soon replaced by sun

I miss winter sky
In no hurry to move on
Seems a lot like me
