I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

In the morning landscape: haiku for April 2010

I look out and see
a silver car on our lawn.
We need a new car!

Searching for haiku
in the morning landscape,
I have found a sign.


a quiet evening
the house so large and spacious
granddaughters gone home


Ah, warm afternoons
punctuated by birdsong
and humming tractors.


sometimes it’s hard
to be in bed with someone else


yes, the new car
is still here in our yard
this morning

(Not a reference to the first above; 
we did get our own 'new' car.)



Mother blows her top.
Children, you better listen
or she'll kick you out.


on top of the vine
against a backdrop of trees
one white flower


dogs bark at the wind
which makes the high branches sway
and ground flowers dance
