Dry Bones – a Haiku

Valley of dry bones
The breath of life in the wind
Life is born of death

Coffee Shop Haiku

Chilly April morn
Chai Latte and a good book
Snow falls from the sky

Lotus flowers float
Atop the dirty water
Growing in the sun.

Rain – a Haiku

Darkened stormy skies
Humidity is rising
Rain is on its way

Life – a Haiku

The glory of life
Maturing in the sunlight
Rooted in the Earth.

In answer to Colleen’s 2018 #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 78, GROW & HONOR, #SnynonymsOnly

Haiku About the Sun

The Sun is shining,
Light escaping darkened clouds,
Warmth through frozen air.

Haiku about a Bird

Bird perched on a branch
In a naked leaf-less tree,
Then he flies away

Haiku Written While Looking Out My Dining Room Window

Blue skies patched with grey
Naked trees, a winter breeze,
The birds are singing.

Snowy Woods (Haiku)

Justine-winter Forrest

A path in the woods
Soft snow lays on frozen trees
Warm winter sun sets

This haiku was inspired by the painting pictured above, which was painted by my wife, Justine.

 

Comfort (Haiku)

Comfortable, warm
Cotton, Wool, and body heat
Scented candles burn.
