Tiny Poems, Haiku and Such

birdsong steals across the threshold
winging into my kitchen
bringing with it the sun
and a grace filled May morning

morning on the cove:
a sweep of light
drifts down to the water
wild daisies in bloom

April 15, 2018

morning on the cove:
almost invisible
falling snow
rising heron

April 14, 2018

morning on the cove:
shifting shadows play across the water
catching light, silvered and sparkling
the warbling song of the wren

April 13, 2018

morning on the cove:
water the color of tarnished silver
distant thunder
and the call of a loon

***

clouds build from the east
a changeable sky
winds shift uneasily
as thunder sounds
storm warning

April 12, 2018

morning on the cove:
wild wings and song
rise from the water
geese set course
on the northern star
***
trilling song forms the shape of frog
silvered and slick
in the bright singing water

April 11, 2018

morning on the cove:
soft light against the quiet water
hushed voices of fishermen
mingle with birdsong
catch and release

sensing his unease
I cover the little dog
with my pale blue shawl

saying
lets go look at the night
and I dance to the tune of our marriage
and his love
harvest moon

I try to still
my mind and spirit
longing for that solid core
of silence

manic squirrels rush across the morning woods
sending the small dog into a frenzy
from tree to tree
scouring the sky with his inquisition

along the morning path
soft thuds
muffled by the gathering leaves
black walnuts fall to the rain softened ground
