Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Lament

Spring touches a nerve
Memories call to my soul
I so want to fly

I long for new skies,
Music, color and fragrance,
To taste mystery.

Haiku: Underground Spring

Earth warms in secret
Precious green gifts creating
First crocus pops up

Haiku: Revelation

Two flats abandoned
In the patio garden
Sad and neglected

Then one bright morning
Garden peppered with red blooms
Flats nowhere in sight

Plant fairy at work
All is ready for summer
With wave of trowel.

Haiku: Water Music

Quiet drizzly rain
Pinging drops on window pane
Mesmerizing sound

Haiku: Domestic Arrangements

Iron patio chairs
May lounge lazy in sunshine
Still work must be done

Mulch-filled wheelbarrow
Orange colored old veteran
Readied for service

Alas weather changed.
Backup wheelbarrow rolled out
And placed up-side-down

Like sugar bowl lid
Covering earthy compost
It keeps off the rain

Haiku: Islands in the Sun

Iron patio chairs
Stalwart remnants of Summer
Take on a new life

Retrieved from storage
Optimistic sun-seekers
Awaiting the Spring

Random arrangement
Solitary testament
To power of hope

Haiku: Spring Nudgings

Leaf buds unfurling
Squirrels nip them for dinner
Life cycles in gear

Pool cover removed
We await fresh blue water
Still wearing jackets

Moon in the night sky
Ever waxing and waning
Some things are constant

Haiku: Medium as Message

Window pane raindrops
Exclamation points slant-wise
Forecast the weather

Haiku: Eternally Spring Hopes

Subtle change occurs
Cooling breezes warm my heart
Winter chill is gone.

Tee shirts put away
Pulled from chest have fresh appeal
I feel young today.

Haiku: Heavenly Fanfare

Warm sun carpets floor
Bare toes wriggle in delight
Arms outstretched I breathe.

Birds fly tree to tree.
Open window lets in breeze
Calls me to come out.

New buds everywhere
Dandelion’s yellow stars
Constellation Spring.
