Haiku for November 18, 2017

an afternoon

of windy rain

— and a migraine


Making art out of something unpleasant… Hey, why not, right?  :- )

Body haiku

hitchhiker:

this ladybug

on my hand

 

pointing —

the little girl follows

her finger

Water haiku

melting snowman

bows

to the sun

 

the parking lot

just wet enough

to smell of rain

Haiku for May 23, 2017

head in the clouds . . .

without warning

rhododendrons


Something rather extraordinary on an otherwise ordinary day . . .  :- )

Colorful haiku

my mug sky blue

and hers lime green

. . . this steaming berry tea

 

she pauses to twirl:

the little girl

in the raspberry dress

 

like five sisters:

a row of orange maples

tall and strong

Beverage haiku

shoveling walkways —

the crew boss

brings hot coffee

Haiku for January 18, 2017

winter night . . .

the hiss of the fire

the sigh of the cat

Happiness haiku

reading in the sunshine . . .

a tangle of lavender

and one devoted bee

 

asleep with the light on . . .

taking the book

from her hand

Haiku for September 22, 2016

season of change . . .

sunlight on the counter —

one yellow banana

in a green ceramic bowl
