Spring Storm Haiku

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

Haiku Wishes

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

Snowy-Spring Haiku

Spring dawn wakens to
susurrus snowflakes yawning
beside cherry blossoms.

Dawn Haiku

At first blush, lilac
hues seep into clouds resting
under rising rays.

Haiku

At dawn, nothing stirs
but fallen baby blossoms
caught a-whirl in wind.

Brittle

Brittle
He grew delicate
roots inside me,
brittle as glass.

Amber Moon

Amber Moon

Above the city,
light polluted night leaks
amber into the moon.

AMBER

Oriental lily
stains the wings
of a white butterfly
amber.

Pearl

Pearl

Twilight blinks
upon the road
a lifeless deer:
pearl balled in
mirrored eye.

The Gloaming

The Gloaming

From thrawn skeleton,
a cloud of pink petals
sigh from the old gean
in the glen beyond the wall,
where birds sing and deer roam,
while rivulets of glassy burn
pass through in lilting lullaby
carrying fallen blooms
from the natural world
in a trail of confetti,
meandering into 
the gloaming mouth 
of the firth.

Unborn

Unborn

What would you wish for
as you blew out twelve candles,
my unborn seedling.
