Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Company’s Gone Home

Summer came inside today
Windows opened wide
Cooling breeze a welcome guest
Heat wave passed with holiday
Hugged relatives and said goodbye
Quiet is settling in

Squirrel is lounging on a branch
Hidden by green oak tree leaves
Cardinal heard but bird not seen
Wind chimes and lovely laughter sounds
Music charming to my ears
Today is calm and bright

Sparkling blue of swimming pool
Invitation to dive in
Turn onto my back and float
Let cares drift away
Old cliché but useful here
Too lazy to create.

Haiku: Forecasting the Weather

Sunny and warmer
Patio transitioning
Holiday lights gone

No bulbs blink nightly
No snowman, sleigh or reindeer
Live in the ivy

March will soon arrive
With its annual snow storm
On St. Paddy’s Day

Not out of the woods
Winter weather still lingers
Aye, but we can dream

Haiku: Natural Eclipsing

Prepared for eclipse
Geared with paper and pin holes
Awaiting big show

Image on paper
Tiny, less than impressive
Till someone noticed

On patio stones
At our feet there were crescents
Shadows abounding

New way of viewing
Sunlight shining made shadows
Through oak leaf pin holes
