Happy International Haiku Poetry Day 2016!

Saint Michael’s head,


new Moon…

my turn to watch over

the stars


the hummingbird

is gone

the falcon surveys

his kingdom

from the highest branch

at least 20 geese

floating on the river

towards the morning

Rapid yellow buzz

Blossoms give up their nectar

For precious honey.

Chirping in the air

A gathering of spring time

All is cool and fresh.

Drinking in moisture

The little rain cloud is filled

To water the grass.

Gleaming feathers preened

Head and shining bill held high

Away floats the duck.

Morning dripping sky

Splashing puddles gathering

Waiting for my boots.

Chasing through the woods

Silver illumination

Can’t escape the moon.

A basket of pups

Snuggled together as one

Sleepy mound of joy.

that seagull

flying with the kites

has no string

the daffodils

gawking at

the still-brown grass

my outstretched arms…

waiting for the wind

to take me away

alone in bed…


the smell of him

misty sunrise—

in the corner of my eye

the dancing Graces
