Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Simple Fanfare

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

Haiku: What If It’s An Ocean

What if the river
I have stepped into anew
Is a wide ocean

And what if behind
Lies another blue ocean
Origin of me

” You cannot step into the same river twice.”

Haiku: Time Management

Future time unknown
Time past is extremely vast
Now’s best time for me

Haiku: Fickle Spring

After Sunday’s snow
Morning sets fluffy white clouds
Afloat in blue sky

Haiku: Welcome Guest

Daybreak soft moonbeams
Noon warm sun casting shadows
Spring knocking on door

Brand New Day: Back to Basics

I walk with a cane
Hiking staff put to new use
I like style and flair

Chic has its limits
No disguising poor balance
I sought therapy

Baby steps trained me
I’m a whiz on the gym floor
A wimp out-of-doors

Summoned my courage
Planned to navigate sidewalk
Leading home from church

Tucked cane under arm
Walked just like I remembered
Arrived unafraid

Haiku: Rosy Hope

Six-thirty A.M.
Daylight savings time wonder
Pink clouds cover sky
