Three Haiku – May 19, 2019

On the path ahead

A bluejay’s missing feather

Shimmers with sunlight.


Here the twisted roots

Furrow the face of the hill

Bare to wind and rain.


Holly, who was queen

All through the leafless winter

Languishes in shade.


Three Haiku – May 2, 2019

After the rainfall

The sidewalk decorated

With soft pink petals


Rain on the rooftop

Inside, the sound of laughter

Echoes off the walls.


Dandelion seeds

They have wishes of their own

Earth, sun, and water.
