Crow – Haiku

Crow on the trashcan
Watch ducks swim a muddy creek
Glide into the sky

Winter Haiku

A crisp cold wind blows
Snow starts swirling on mountains
Ice sparkles on trees.

Huginn and Muninn (Haiku)

Odinn, Huginn, and Muninn

Two ravens fly out
Watching all under the sky
And returning home.

Haiku on Autumn Weather

Golden wet oak leaves
Mulch in puddles of decay
Earthworms turn the soil.

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

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.

Haiku About the Sun

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