Observations of an Octogenarian

Haiku: Top of the Morning

Scrumptious blueberries
Crunchy cereal cold milk
Bowlful of summer

Haiku: Hope Is the Thing With Feathers

Changes are daunting
Signs of aging surround me
Not for faint of heart

Surprises yet charm
Emanating from strangers
Delight and joy

Days that begin grey
May hold moments of newness
I’m not giving up

Haiku: Absentminded

Oak tree has acorns
Season must have gone haywire
August still ahead

Calm Sunday morning

Haiku: Lazy

Recliner naptime
Sounds of pool water splashing
Summer lullaby

Birdsong and cool breeze
Fresh blueberries for breakfast
Quiet hints summer’s here

Haiku: Summer Sounds

Clanging scraping trucks
Patching potholes of winter
Birds chirp in the trees

Raindrops pelt window
Promise rich growth of plant life
A Zen kind of day

Haiku: Exploring Everyday Life

For five years or so
I sought and found poetry
Alive all around

Once fertile places
Barren of inspiration
Poetic muse fled

World news tells stories
Unjust uses of power
Death and climate change

Writing unconquered
More essential than ever
Has stories to tell

My bailiwick calls
Ordinary life a poem
Alive within self

Haiku: Spring Hope

Bright moon shone last night
Peeled tangerine for breakfast
New oak leaves flutter

Two visiting geese
Reappear out of season
Honking early morn
