Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Brief Run

Summer lingered still
Not yet ready to depart
Autumn knocked on door

Robed in finery
Fiery red, soft apricot
Jack Frost-designed leaves

Wind sent them a-twirl
Beauty carpets patio
Winter’s on the way

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

Gold leaves everywhere
Like the end of the rainbow
Leprechauns at play

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

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: Autumn Pallette

Red cheeks of apples
Gray squirrels a-scurrying
Bright flaming orange leaves

Blue skies overhead
Soft green grass still a-growing
Crazy quilt glory

In Response to Daily Prompt: Glorious

Breaking Camp

Summer is slowly pulling up stakes
Bombarding acorns ping loudly
On iron patio tables
The weather grows chilly
Heat for the pool turned off for the season
Time for our word game to move indoors

Dear Belle who’s now gone
Kept our things in her closet
Pillows that cushioned the hard iron chairs
Red bag of stones that held down cards when the wind blew
Now need new lodgings until summer returns
Cards stay with us to play word games inside

As a call went out for winter storage
I searched my apartment and found just the thing
A shelf high in a cabinet I cannot reach
Empty and waiting to be filled with the promise
Of summer and joy of word games with friends
Also  memories of the season just passed

Haiku: Hiding in Plain Sight

Bright autumn colors
Wait beneath summer’s green leaves
Jack Frost’s grand surprise

Dark tresses of youth
Age transforming to silver
Alchemy’s magic
