Exploring the poetry of everyday life

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

Quiet after rain
Candle glows in darkened room
Lightening fades away

Round moon in night sky
Casts bright beam on my carpet
Restores gentle peace

Haiku: The Moon

Old as history
Antique brooch pinned to sky
Splendid evening wear

Haiku: Summer Light Show

Lightning zigzags flash
Lamp light shudders and goes dark
Midnight spectacle.

Evening Finery: A Haiku

Pink streak gracing sky
As the day changes to night
Puts on party clothes.
