first Robin spotted
the low lands are facing the dark
snow falls softly

first Robin spotted
looking for worms in the ground
the sun was setting

the low lands are facing the dark
sweet tune of Robin is heard
the sound of heaven

snow falls softly
the boy wants to taste the snow
first snow of the year

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, October 25th, 2017 raindrops

The rain is needed
But the timing of the storm
Couldn’t have been worse
I was not going to allow the cold
Wind-driven rain to change my plan
The sound of the rain around me enfold
Even the thunder cannot make me run
In each level, I have to play fair
A key player of life, with a glint of hope
I’ve always been fair and square
No matter what, I’ve always able to cope
Taking everything with a grain of salt
But then he came and everything changed
The whole world seems to halt
Doesn’t want him to be estranged
Attaching to him like glue, losing my mind
But he wants to go where no one has been
I held his hands, our fingers entwined
He was nowhere to be seen, to my chagrin

Let the rain tease me
Embracing me with passion
The scent and splendour
Of the earth longing for rain
Quenches its thirst and desire

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, September 27th 2017 – mushrooms

The forest is such an ancient place. It was raining last night so this morning’s walk is a bit foggy and wet. The branches and barks of trees are full of moss, all kelp-like. The pines are several houses tall. The air is rich with the fragrance of leaves and loam, damp, too. I take in all the air my lungs will hold and expel it slowly. And as I walk further, mushrooms appear everywhere.

The autumn walk
Mushrooms appear everywhere
Symphony of life
