Haiku: Indwelling

I open my door
Sunlight shining through windows
A bright welcome home

Quiet peace fills me
Hanging up my old jacket
I sigh a deep breath

I’ve lived here five years
Made a whole new beginning
Yet things keep changing

The constant bedrock
This dear space occupies me
A promise secure

In response to Daily Prompt: Inhabit

Haiku: Pesky Nuisances

Pests have legs and crawl
Others meant to fly have wings
Bad ones bite and sting

But the worst of all
Can be found in human forms
Too many to list

Haiku: Time Intractable

Fiddling on his roof
Puzzled amidst changing times
Tevye’s words still ring true

Can things stay the same
Honoring past treasured ways
Moving future-wise?

Roots traditional
Most beloved and revered
Bear new fruits in time

Haiku: My Favorite Food Group

Luscious lemon squares
Decadent dark chocolate
Don’t get me started

Warm salty pretzels
Guacamole I yearn for
White wine and dark beer

Strawberries and grapes
Swiss cheese, feta or cheddar
Tasty together

Now about dinner
Must admit I’ve no room left
I filled up on snacks
