Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Lament For the Future

January day
Dull gray clouds obscure the sky
Too warm for jeweled snow

Will it thus be so
World unrecognizable
In aeons ahead?

Haiku: Sky Music

Gray gloom lifts baton
Band of clouds picks up tempo
Till sun changes tune

Haiku: Wall Flowers

Summer music stilled
Fragrant breezes play no more
Patio stones cold

People gone inside
Chairs wait for another year
Stacked against the fence

Haiku: Appetizer

Soft pink candy stripes
Streaking Autumn dawning sky
Delicious morning

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

Haiku: Fickle Weather

Sun dapples red bricks
Thunderstorms in the forecast
Yin yang of summer

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: 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
