Admires nature’s handiwork
Breakfasts on tree buds

Haiku: Just Picture It

Winter’s winding down
Tiny buds adorn the trees
Birds are building nests

Cover’s off the pool
Dirty water visible
Mind’s eye sees sun screen

Haiku: Morning Song

Clock ticks day begins
Candle flickers as I pray
Peace for all on Earth

Haiku: Seasonal Attire

Temperature freezing
Squirrel sunbathes on tree limb
Fur coat keeps him warm

Haiku: Night Light

Frosty midnight sky
Pale full moon with gentle glow
Beams me off to sleep

In response to Daily Prompt: Frigid

Enscribing the Heavens from This side

My son Donovan chose these words as the title of a book containing the first two years of my Cronechronicler posts that he collected and had published in 2016. The poet David Whyte used them in his poem Journey in his book The House of Belonging. Whyte writes that “sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart”.

For two years more I have searched that sky and found inspiration in the poetry of everyday life. I have found freedom to trust my muse and the words that come to me as I look at the colors of the dawn clouds or enjoy watching a squirrel couple build its nest. I hope in time to collect my Haiku and create another book. For interested readers my original book can be found at https://www.amazon.com/Enscribing-Heavens-This-Side-cronechronicler/dp/1530407133.

Haiku: Lament

Spring touches a nerve
Memories call to my soul
I so want to fly

I long for new skies,
Music, color and fragrance,
To taste mystery.

Haiku: Daybreak Silhouette

Dark tree branch fingers
Like unearthly sea coral
Trace patterns on sky

Earth warms in secret
Precious green gifts creating
First crocus pops up

Haiku: Daylight Moon

Lady slipper moon
Lingers in pale deep blue dawn
Daylight saving time
