Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Revelation

Two flats abandoned
In the patio garden
Sad and neglected

Then one bright morning
Garden peppered with red blooms
Flats nowhere in sight

Plant fairy at work
All is ready for summer
With wave of trowel.

Haiku: Domestic Arrangements

Iron patio chairs
May lounge lazy in sunshine
Still work must be done

Mulch-filled wheelbarrow
Orange colored old veteran
Readied for service

Alas weather changed.
Backup wheelbarrow rolled out
And placed up-side-down

Like sugar bowl lid
Covering earthy compost
It keeps off the rain

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: Then There Were Three

One in each corner
Trees grace gray stone patio
Squirrels summer playground

Autumn leaves glory
Arched cathedral of beauty
Warmth before winter

Noise of buzz-saw
Sounding grave interruption
Felled one dying tree

View from my window
Surprising inheritance
Broad city-scape scene
