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

Tree dark silhouette
Blush pink sky illuminates
Early autumn dawn

Haiku: Silvery Light

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

Recycling

My AC is broken, not cycling cool air
On this monstrously hot day
Sweat doesn’t cool but reminds me
I’ve a talent to reclaim

Long hot southern summers
With no air conditioning.
A back yard with pecan trees
Taught me how to catch breezes.

I sat by a window not moving a muscle
Getting lost in book-reading
Words were my magic carpet
FanningĀ  air as it flew.

Today by my window
Oak tree leaves transport me
A slight wind brings coolness
Settling round my feet.

Haiku: Future Gazing

Warm sun-dappled leaves
Wind-rippled set to dancing
Pale lazy blue sky

Seasonal setting
Telling tale going nowhere
I long to be young

Haiku: Spring Nudgings

Leaf buds unfurling
Squirrels nip them for dinner
Life cycles in gear

Pool cover removed
We await fresh blue water
Still wearing jackets

Moon in the night sky
Ever waxing and waning
Some things are constant

Haiku: Autumn Delight

Like beneath water
Sun shafts sparkle on ripples
Leaf shadows dancing
