Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Procrastination

Temperatures warm
Stubborn leaves on trees still green
Summer flowers bloom

Autumn will arrive
Splendid colors flaming bright
In her own good time

Company’s Gone Home

Summer came inside today
Windows opened wide
Cooling breeze a welcome guest
Heat wave passed with holiday
Hugged relatives and said goodbye
Quiet is settling in

Squirrel is lounging on a branch
Hidden by green oak tree leaves
Cardinal heard but bird not seen
Wind chimes and lovely laughter sounds
Music charming to my ears
Today is calm and bright

Sparkling blue of swimming pool
Invitation to dive in
Turn onto my back and float
Let cares drift away
Old cliché but useful here
Too lazy to create.

Haiku: Natural Music

Summer’s green noises
Early morning birds chirping
Oak tree leaves rustling

Passages

Summertime six years ago
I settled in this space
Unpacked and put my memories
On walls and table tops
In places I found evidence
Of occupant who came before
Tiny holes in closet door
Suggest a place to hang his ties
Apartment life is transitory
I put roots down none the less
Created my new home.

These past six years began a tale
Chapters of unexpected change
So many things I used to do
No longer are within my reach
My apartment is the same
It is I who have a different view
I will re-member cherished gifts
Grieve and lay them to the side
Look out the window at the tree
Watch pink clouds at early dawn
Embrace anew life’s mystery.

Squirrel begins day
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: Daybreak Silhouette

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

Haiku: Front Row Seat

Sun sends out its rays
Windows sparkle in return
Bricks glow dusty red

Squirrel leaves its nest
Scampers cross still leafless limb
Morning show begins

Haiku: Silvery Light

Full moon in night sky
Behind shadowed tree branches
Sets me to dreaming
