Untitled Haiku

Desert in Winter II

Crisp skies without clouds.
Nose smarts inhaling cold winds.
Desert winter hike.

Clarity

 

Clouds gather swiftly –
pouring rain, biting winds –
still, clear skies follow.

Half-Light

Shadow of Leaves on Leaf

Twilight falls slowly:
shadows lengthening on leaves,
green fading to night.

*Sorry, I just realized I published the unedited version of my haiku in the first instance of posting. (Yikes!) This is the final version.

Kitchen Window

Kitchen Window

Shadows retreat to
cooled corners as light shines through –
the kitchen window.

Spring

Soon after the rain
dew drips from petals slowly –
amaranthine Spring.

Winter Fog

Fog conceals briefly
naked trees, empty branches –
then cold sun rises.

Sorrow – a Haiku

Bare Orchid Stalk

Sorrow’s passing waits
only for Time whose schedule
no one understands.

Untitled Haiku

Peeling Paint

lives lived here, confined,
have long since faded with time,
leaving peeling walls.

Lens glued to my eye,
an hour becomes minutes.
Poem in a snap.
