Haiku: Changing Tempos

Winter dawning sky
Lovely clouds with stripes of pink
Linger for my view

Sky of summer dawn
Early wash of rose and blue
Soon replaced by sun

I miss winter sky
In no hurry to move on
Seems a lot like me

Cover tree limbs and branches
Coral fans appear.

Haiku: New Harmonies

Black holes collide, chirp
Hungry robins search for food
Silent in the snow.

Undressed by sun’s warm beaming
Return to dull brown.

Winter Transition

This morning I put away my Christmas tree. I’ll miss it.
Its tiny lights and ornaments glowed in early arriving darkness.
The presence of quiet beauty charmed me,
Calmed me after family festive meals and boisterous grandchildren
Gave me quite enough cheer.
I’ll put it up again next year.

The season after Christmas I love well.
My home settles into ordinary time.
The clock counts peacefully the seconds, minutes, hours.
Yet there are weeks, months and a year ahead
Whose calculation strains my arithmetic.
Time will give me lessons in transition.

Today cold winds blow and snow flakes fly.
I think it will soon be winter.

Tracing frost flowers by night.
Window panes abloom.
