Three Haiku – March 21, 2019 (Thaw)

Hyacinth perfume

The purple flowers blooming

Spring intoxicates.

*****

The first tulip shoots

Rise from yesterday’s bare earth

Greeted by birdsong

*****

When will the trees bud

And the robins return home?

Can you feel the thaw?

Three Haiku- February 17, 2019

These grassy sand dunes

Seem a fine vacation home

Visiting owl.

*****

Melancholy woods?

There is no such thing, old friend

You brought it with you.

*****

Lovers carve their names

Into the elephant skin

Of this old beech tree.
