Haiku 1/11/22

Sunlit silver clouds

Tree shadows against white fence

Brown leaf ground cover

Blended Family

Met in a crayon box

Blue and green were dating

A kiss led to mating

Their love child, Teal

With and Without Raisins


The house

Smells of spices

Cloves and nutmeg

Oh yes, cinnamon

She commands the kitchen

For this is her time to bake

The one thing she remembers most

Loaves of pumpkin bread to give as gifts

It’s Christmas like her mother did for years

Haiku 11/23/21

The green of the ground

Wearing red and golden leaves

Sparkles with snowflakes

Bum’s Rush

The wrinkle in the tout’s

Pitch for merchandise cheap

Lull customers to sleep

No excitement

Packs his traveling case

Off to find a new crowd

No street selling allowed

Oh, drat the luck
