Fall Tanka – September 22, 2015

Summer. Gone so fast.
We wear long sleeves; we don’t swim.
No beach, no peaches.

We cursed your heat, but don’t feel
Hurt, summer; soon we’ll hate cold.

Thursday Tanka: Snow

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMarch, Coming In

Silent lion shakes
His mane – scatters whiteness and
Strangeness, beauty, change.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThree weeks from now, we should see
Lamblike, fluffy, white – wait. No more!

Snow Haiku

It comes stealthily
All night, soundless. If you
Don’t look, you’ll miss it.

November Haiku

BareTreesDays grow short, shorter.
Air chills with lengthening night.
Leaves? They’ve all fallen.

Thursday Tanka of the Birds

BirdTracksYou were here. You’re gone,
Tiny cold feet tucked into
Warm feathers, flying
Out of winter. Tomorrow
Or the next day: tropical.

Friday’s Haiku – February 21, 2014

Hope

I saw a willow
Yesterday: yellow-green, not
Brown, against the snow.
