Winter

At nearly forty,
I leave my sere and yellow
for naked winter.

Haiku

Fluttering past
sibilant trees—butterflies
bleached in solstice sun.

Haiku ~ three

On the old apple
blossom, crispy petals bloom
into white butterflies.

Haiku ~ two

Sparkling star-like on 
roses, dewdrops ignited 
by sunrise.

Haiku ~ one

Gauzy clouds veil sun-
down, diluting the scarlett 
sky, salmon-pink.

Haiku

Breathy droplets 
(suspended between dust motes)
drown my flailing lungs.

Spring Storm Haiku

At dawn, torn 
blossoms litter the lawn:
storm damage.

Haiku Wishes

Puff faces, feather light 
wishes,waltzing with winds:
dandelion fluff.
